PREVIEW | Sporting Khalsa v Belles

5 April 2023

Sponsored by

Belles continue on the road this Easter Sunday when they travel to take on Sporting Khalsa Women at the Guardian Warehousing Arena in Willenhall, West Midlands.

Nick Buxton's side came from behind to claim a point at Northampton last weekend and retain second spot in the league, although the gap with Stourbridge has now increased to nine points with both teams having five games left to play.

Nick said:"On reflection it was a fair result, an end-to-end game with two good teams trying to play football on a heavy and bumpy pitch, though the corner decision that led to their goal may have cost us the three points. Fair play though to the girls - the desire, the passion and workrate was there and I can't ask anymore. 

Sunday's opponents Sporting Khalsa Women sit in fourth place in the league on thirty-two points, two places and three points behind Belles, but have played two games more with ten wins, two draws and seven defeats. Just this week Khalsa lost on penalties in the Final of the Staffordshire County Cup after a thrilling 3-3 draw with Northern Premier side Stoke City Women.

Sunday's game will be the the seventh meeting of the two sides, with Belles winning this season's reverse fixture 2-1 in a tight game at Moorends courtesy of a Jess Andrew penalty and a late winner from Sophie Scargill.

Nick said:"We need to go to Khalsa and do the same as at Northampton and give 100%. Regardless of the level you're playing at or the surface you're playing on, if you work harder than the other team then you'll win. 

A win for Khalsa will see them draw level on points with Belles, whereas any other result will see Belles at least maintain the differential between the two sides.
