Tigers on road
out for revenge
The Crown Hotel Westlawn Tigers will have revenge on their minds as they travel down to Macksville this afternoon for the game against Valley United.
The Tigers are eager to avenge a last minute loss in Round 5, when the sides last met.
The Tigers are better prepared for today's round 12 North Coast Football league match with coach Terry Wratten making some key personnel changes over the season to achieve a more competitive and attacking side.
The Tigers have put it to some more fancied sides in recent games and if they continue that form, the Tigers should come away with the points.
Wratten named his Premier League side as Brad Robertson in goals with Cody Wratten, Mitchell Schofield and Andrew Laverty in the backline. Peter Fysh, Daniel Purser, Matt Lobsey, Matt Dougherty and Craig Phelps are the starting midfield with the attacking duo of James Connor and Jamie Pitkin set to trouble the Raiders up front.
The Tigers reserves squad for the warm up match game is Michael Bowles, Luke Bickerton, Maddison Slattery, Adam Pearce, Steve Allen, Adam Pearce, Harley Fennessy, Joel Gosson, Jacob Lollback, Daniel Lollback, Shorn Kippax, Thomas Ellem, Graeme Egan and Terry Wratten.
The Tigers reserves comfortably accounted for the Valley Reserves in their last match up 4-2 and reserves coach Dennis Pearce will be hoping they break their recent run of come-from-behind draws to return to the winners list with their attacking and entertaining brand of football.
For the local football enthusiasts, this weekend presents 48 hours of near continuous play to watch.
With the juniors playing this morning, this afternoon will see the Westlawn Panthers play South Services Gunners on Rushforth Park.
The Panthers will be fired up by their 1-0 loss to the Gunners in their previous meeting this season and coach John Pitkin wants to see a bit more pig in his players this week.
