FRESH from a week off, the Bobcats have the challenging task of travelling to Boambee tomorrow to take on the Bombers on their home turf.

While the Bombers have struggled to find form this season, winning just one of their 10 competition games, the conditions are sure to be trying for the Bobcats on a pitch that always proves a challenge.

The Bobcats will have their depth tested again, with Jarred Doyle leaving the area, Kevin Crofton probably out for the season with a knee injury, and Jeremy Walters unavailable for the clash.

However, on a positive note Fraser Robinson will return from suspension and Sam Ireland will return to fill the hole in centre midfield.

Coach Steve O'Sullivan is expected to name a few more changes to the team and will most likely give in-form striker Luke Hanlon another shot in the top grade.

With just three points separating first place from fifth on the ladder, the three points on offer this weekend for the Bobcats against the last-placed Boambee Bombers will be paramount.

First grade kicks off at 2pm tomorrow at Boambee.
