Lions search for back-to-back

Great Western Lions will look to go back-to-back with a win over Lismore-Derrinallum tomorrow in the Mininera and District Football League.

Great Western will be looking to go back-to-back tomorrow.

Great Western will be looking to go back-to-back tomorrow.

The win last week has certainly given the group a much needed confidence boost, after a less than ideal start to the season, but Lismore-Derrinallum are a strong team.

Results so far this season suggest the Demons have improved and with a couple of new faces around the club, it will be hard for Great Western to get a gauge on where their opponent is at.

In the past Lismore-Derrinallum has been a big bodied side and on the smaller ground at home, Great Western can expect a lot of hard contested footy.

That type of hard in and under football suits Great Western, so they will be disappointed if they are unable to be competitive.

Lions will need to play good defensive football tomorrow to minimise the run that Lismore-Derrinallum has, but from the first bounce, the focus will be on playing their own brand of football.

If required players like the in form Tom McCord, Cody Virgona and Mark Bradshaw all have the capacity to play a run with role as well as finding their own football.

Nathan Ross, who played well in the game prior to the Queen's Birthday break, will again play as he looks to find some consistency to secure his senior spot.

Danny Grellet is set to return from an ankle injury and will provide plenty of run across half back and through the midfield with his run and carry.

Damien Skurrie will also be a handy inclusion with his leadership and knowledge out on the ground.

Skurrie will most likely play a role up forward. He provides a great focal point and brings those around him into the game.

Great Western will need a contribution from not just four or five players though, but from their whole 22 on the day.

Training for Great Western has been good, but they have also given the injured players time to get themselves right.

It is important now for the senior team and the rest of the club to play some consistent football in order to get their season back on track.

A win tomorrow will be the perfect start to the second half of the season.

Great Western will play in front of their home crown from 2.20pm tomorrow afternoon.
