MACLEAY Valley Rangers will head to Sawtell this weekend looking to make it two in a row in the Coastal Premier League after their successful away victory against Port Saints last weekend.
The Rangers kicked their season off with a great start scoring a 2-1 win in Port Macquarie, whilst Sawtell won in an absolute thriller against Kempsey Saints, 4-3.
Rangers coach, Chris Walker, says if Rangers are successful they'll have to control possession and attempt to cut out all of Sawtell's attacking opportunities.
"The Saints and Sawtell match sounded like a really exciting game, it would've been good viewing," he told the Argus.

"With that scoreline it sounds like Sawtell are a really attacking team so we'll have to ensure defensively we're really switched on.
"We'll have to wait and see what they produce on game day, for us we'll have to be offensively strong, utilise our counter attacking opportunities and nullify any of their attacking plays."
The Sawtell side that played against Saints are said to have an average age of 19 and coach Jody Jenkins told the CPL media there's an expectation they'll only get better.
"The longer we go on the fitter we will get and the more confidence the youngsters will gain," he said.
Kick off for this match will be at 3pm at Toormina Oval in Sawtell.
The reserves match between these two clubs will be played at 1pm on the same ground.
