Wolves Women kick off their campaign in the brand new FA Women's Premier League Northern Division on Sunday afternoon against Derby County at their new ground of Keys Park - home of Hednesford Town FC.
Head Coach Marco Pratt joined manager Trevor Mullings' staff at the start of last season, as Mullings moved from his Reserve Team manager role into the hot seat.
Pratt said: "We've got a very similar squad to last season, with a few of the younger players coming through and looking good. We're looking more confident in open play and going forward, we are understanding where we want to play.
"What we want to do, is have the players become more comfortable with the ball at their feet, play the game and enjoy it. However it's not all about the coach's point of view, we've taken the feedback of the players, looked at what works and what we are comfortable doing. It looks like it's working because the players look more comfortable and are happy with the way they are playing."
Wolves captain Natalie Hall added: "Finishing last season strongly was important; the win against Forest was the turning point and we learned the lesson that day that, every game we go into, we should go into it believing that we can go and get a result, which is something we need to carry into this season.
"If we can get points on the board early, that would be really helpful. The last few seasons we have got off to bad starts and it has taken time for us to get going, so an early three points would be great.
"If we can build on last season, rather than having a relegation battle, we can aim higher up.
"The games we were losing last season, can we turn them into wins this season? If we can be more clinical and put more chances away, while being more solid as a team, we stand a very good chance."
Sunday's game is a 2pm kick off at Hednesford Town FC, Keys Park, Hednesford, WS12 2DZ. Admission is £2.50 for adults and £1.50 concessions.
