Match Report: Final home game of the regular season and a number of players returning from holiday and injury

Knowing only a win would give us an outside chance of the title going into the final week, playing the team coming last, on paper, seemed a straightforward task. Having played Wentworth Falls earlier in the season had demonstrated they were a far more dangerous opponent than their position suggested

In the first half we played some good football, keeping the ball well and creating chances. Alex C won the ball down the left and played Alex L in and his shot shot across keeper went in the bottom corner

We kept Wentworth Falls pinned back for most of the half but when they went forward they created chances. Eli made two brilliant saves and then one shot skimmed the bar. Eli was finally beaten by a ball across the box that no one cut out and it went in.

So, as per the first game with them, we were level at half time. Motivation was easy…noting a number of the Rovers boys had come to watch us, I asked my boys if they wanted to give them the title by losing at home in front of them. Coaching is easy sometimes…

The second half started well with Millsy heading in Alex L’s corner – see photo. Max hit one from centre midfield and goal poach Ethan tapped the well saved rebound in. Jacob jinked past his opponent in midfield and laid off to Dom in space and he hit a pile driver into the top corner from outside the box

Player of the match Jacob. Really dominant in midfield, unlocking the opposition defence a number of times

So for the second season in a row it all comes down to the last game of the season between us and Rovers. This year Rovers are in the box seat needing just a draw – we have to win and hope. Good luck Todd and Danny
