Andy Butler was left frustrated as the Belles drew 1-1 to Long Eaton United Ladies on Tuesday night.

Butler said: “It was scrappy, we just didn’t get control of the game, the game became a basketball game”.

“It was end to end to end, there was never real control from either side.

“It’s a point, a good point and who knows it could prove to be crucial at the end of the season, we just need to keep the consistency."

Lindsey Tugby made her debut after signing from Barnsley last week. Butler praised the forward on how she has settled into the squad so quickly.

He said: “She is a great asset to the club, she looks a clever player, knows what she is doing.

"She was making some great forward runs and her link up play was great. Going forward she will be a key player for the club."

Butler's side are within striking distance of the table's top spot in what is proving to be a wide-open campaign. They head to Wem Town hoping to stretch their unbeaten run.
