Coming off wins last weekend, Tongala and Congupna will be out for a repeat on Saturday when they do battle in Murray Football League.GEORGINA CAHILL June 26, 2014 3:15am
With both sides coming off thrilling round 10 wins, it is certain to be a tightly contested match when Tongala hosts Congupna in Murray Football League on Saturday.
Tongala registered its second win of the season last weekend, getting on top of Numurkah by 32 points, while The Road caused a major upset against Nathalia, claiming a five-point win.
Just one win separates the sides, who will meet for the first time this season.
Despite sitting 12th on the ladder, Tongala coach David Newman was pleased with his side’s recent form.
‘‘It’s a good feeling at the moment,’’ Newman said.
‘‘The last three weeks have been really good.’’
For Newman, this week’s focus was on putting four quarters together.
He said the Blues would focus on their work-rate and ability to spread.
‘‘The main goal is to try and repeat what we did last week,’’ Newman said.
‘‘It’s been a challenge for our playing group being consistent.’’
Neither side lost players to injury last weekend and do not expect to make changes.
The Road’s Nathan Congram will get first dibs on in-form Blues forward Andrew Reid.
Reid booted eight goals against Numurkah last week and sits fifth on the league’s leading goal-kicker list. Jordan Souter can expect extra attention from The Road, while the Blues will do their homework on Daniel Bowles.
Heath Barton was The Road’s only multiple goal-scorer last week with three.
The Road coach Kevin O’Donoghue wanted his side to replicate its four-quarter effort against Nathalia.
‘‘Everyone had a contribution to the win, whereas we’ve had a few passengers,’’ O’Donoghue said.
‘‘We’ve been playing some really good footy, we’ve just had some lapses.’’
O’Donoghue predicted muddy, difficult conditions and hoped his side would adjust.
‘‘It looks like it’s going to be really wet, so we’ll try to be as clean as we can.’’
