After an exhilarating victory against Lincoln City week ago, the Iqbal Poultry stadium plays host to Belles' first home game of the season - a South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield FC.

Andy Butler was pleased after the Imps result and wants the same again from his side: "Nothing is done now - a great performance but it's only three points. It's important that we keep on a roll and we've been working this week on doing that. We kick on against Sheffield".

Belles tasted back to back victories at the start of last season, and the win against Lincoln will breathe confidence ahead of the game on Sunday.

This is Sheffield's first season at tier four since their relegation from the Northern Premier Division last season. They have started well - they saw off Stourbridge FC 2-0 on the opening weekend and beat Solihull Moors 2-0 last time out.

It's the first time the two clubs have squared off against each other at this level, having last met in the Northern Premier in the 2018-19 campaign.

Belles drew 1-1 and won 2-0 that season, but ultimately suffered relegation to tier four, whilst Sheffield stayed up by three points. Last season, the two clubs met in pre-season with Andy Butler's side victorious by a goal to nil.
