AFTER facing off against each other in the local derby last week, Macleay’s soccer teams will resume their assault against the rest of the competition tomorrow in round ten of the Football Mid North Coast premier league.
The Macleay Valley Rangers will again be at home in their game against Port FC while the Kempsey Saints will travel to Old Bar to take on the Barbarians.
Fresh from a 4-2 win against Kempsey last week, the Rangers will be aiming to continue their winning form against the last placed Port side.
They will be without playmaker Darren Morn and forward Sam Potter for the game after they were both injured in last week’s game.
Coach, Peter Henry, said his side need to make sure they attack the game in the same way as they did against the Saints.
“It’s important we keep our intensity up and keep the momentum from last week going,” he said.
“I’m confident the guys will be able to play good football but with a competition as close as this, table position doesn’t guarantee an easy match. Port FC managed to win last week after losing by seven goals the week before so we have to be on our game.”
Despite their loss against the Rangers last week, the Saints remain third on the table with four wins from their nine games.
Coach, Jason Fisher, said his side know where they need to improve after last week’s loss.
“At training we have been working on our overall structure in defence,” he said.
“Our discipline was also lacking a bit so hopefully we can show some more control this week.”
The Rangers will take on Port FC at Dangar Park from 3pm.
