CKS Swifts going all out against Tigers

CKS Swifts cannot afford to take a backward step even against bottom placed Pimpinio in tomorrow's clash of Horsham District Football.

CKS Swifts are not taking tomorrow's game against Pimpinio lightly.

CKS Swifts are not taking tomorrow's game against Pimpinio lightly.

Although going into the match reasonably confident, the Swifts coaching staff will go in with the same mentality as any other game.

"We will go in with the same goals and same mindset as we do every week," coach Paul Hanns said.

Despite Pimpinio having not won a game for the year, Swifts are still wary of their opposition and what they could produce if given a chance.

"They are a young side and once young kids get their tails up anything is possible," Hanns said.

One of Swifts priorities against the lower placed teams is really finishing the game off well and putting a big score on the board.

As well as a big score themselves they will look to limit the attack of their opposition.

"If we can keep them to a low score then we will be extremely happy," Hanns said.

"We want them to be kicking a couple of goals for the game not each quarter."

As mentioned last week, CKS Swifts will now increase their running workload at training in order to be at their peak when they meet the likes of Laharum and Harrow-Balmoral in the second half of the season.

"I guess we just want our fitness to keep improving and now is as good a time as any," Hanns said.

Both Hanns and Ben Martin agreed to work on their fitness over the next three weeks while their opposition weren't obvious threats.

Swifts will still have some work to do to rectify what went wrong last weekend against Taylors Lake.

"We just really need to get some consistency," Hanns said.

"We need to avoid the individual efforts and praise and stick to the team aspect. We all have our own roles to play and I expect us to do that."

Josh Molan will be unavailable for this week's game, but Luke Mitchell is still a chance to play.

"I've spoken to Luke, but his selection is still up in the air," Hanns said.

Mitchell has played just two senior games for Swifts this year and Hanns has been impressed with what he has seen.

"We have only seen bits and pieces of what he can do and it was exciting enough," Hanns said.

Mitchell has the ability to split packs and has outstanding aeriel skills.

Swifts are hopeful that Mitchell will be able to string a couple of games together now as he adds an extra dimension to their line up.

Swifts will take on a winless Pimpinio on their home ground tomorrow with action to start at 2.20pm.
