Reds ready to give students lesson
With the angst of relegation from the Consolidated Energy amateur division three gone, La Fiamma’s players are now playing football with a smile on their face.
Mark Gray’s men have won two games on the bounce and enter tomorrow’s game against Curtin University at the Salvatore Scuito Stadium (6pm). A victory would give them an opportunity to leapfrog Canning City into fifth place, should they drop points against Lynwood United on Sunday.
With the players breaking the shackles and enjoying their football a lot more, Gray is confident of a solid showing at home.
Gray’s confidence is backed up by his side having taken 17 home points from a possible 24 this season.
“Typically, home form and away form can be two different things,” he said. “Now the pressure is off a little bit (in terms of avoiding relegation) the lads are really starting to enjoy the games a lot more.
“The lads have had a bit of a break with the bye last weekend, so they are really keen to have a game and go out and do what they need to. “It we can turn it on, I really think we have a chance to bag these points. I’m really looking forward to it.”
The Reds will be without firstchoice goalkeeper Harry McCann, who is currently serving a onegame ban after being sent off during the thrill-a-minute 3-2 home win over the Stirling Lions on September 2.
