The Redeyes are out to snap a three-game losing streak when they travel to Tocumwal tomorrow.June 13, 2014 3:50am
Blighty is virtually fighting with Picola United for the fifth spot on the Picola & District Football League ladder.
Both sides have three wins to their names, two behind the top four.
The Redeyes have a tough match at Tocumwal tomorrow, while United also has a hard day at the office when it travels to Berrigan.
Tomorrow’s contest at Tocumwal is the third successive week on the road for Blighty and coach Rob Wren understands the weight of it.
‘‘It’s a very big game for us, we need to get back on the board,’’ he said.
‘‘We are just hanging in the top five by the skin of our teeth so every game from here on is pretty important.
‘‘We only won three games out of the first time around playing everyone so we have to get a few back and Tocumwal is one of them.’’
The Redeyes will welcome back star utility Jake Plattfuss for the important clash, while Jack Eastman’s battle with Bloods goalkicker Dylan Flanagan will be a highlight.
With one bag of nine his standout game up forward, Flanagan has booted 34 for the season and has kicked at least three in every game so far.
At the other end, Brody Lumber, Brad Todd and Plattfuss should be too much for Tocumwal’s back line to handle, but Wren said it will come down to how much his charges want to win.
‘‘Tocumwal play similar to us. Real hard, contested footy and I think it will be pretty tight,’’ he said.
‘‘We need to have our head over the footy and have a real crack because I know Tocumwal will.’’
The Redeyes have shown they can match it with the best in the business and they’ll be desperate to get back on the winners’ list tomorrow.
