Avenel will be looking to end a seven-year itch when it travels to Nagambie on Saturday.CHALPAT SONTI May 8, 2014 3:53am
Avenel will be looking to end almost seven years of pain when the Swans senior football side travels to Nagambie on Saturday. The Lakers have not only won every derby fixture since 2008, they’ve handed out some beltings along the way.
In football terms, it’s a generation since Mick Donovan kicked five first-quarter goals — and seven for the game — when the Swans last triumphed. That was at Nagambie, the venue on Saturday, and it’s fair to say that this looks the best Avenel side since, although that has been said before.
So where might this derby be won or lost? For most games that question begins and ends in the midfield, and it seems no different here.
The Lakers’ domination of these derbies in recent years (10 in a row) has largely been built around the middle and many of those players will be back again on Saturday.
