Pro­mo­tion on the line

South Western Times - - Sport -

PRO­MO­TION to Foot­ball West’s top tier com­pe­ti­tion is still a pos­si­bil­ity for the South West Phoenix af­ter they belted Can­ning City 4-0 at WML Sta­dium on Satur­day.

The win puts the Phoenix one point be­hind For­rest­field United on the lad­der with one game to go.

Which­ever team fin­ishes high­est is set to do bat­tle in a pro­mo­tion­rel­e­ga­tion se­ries against the bot­tom team from the NPL.

The Phoenix needed vic­tory to keep their chances alive and they did so em­phat­i­cally, dis­man­tling the bot­tom-placed side for 90 min­utes.

As­sis­tant coach Tony Novello said the play­ers had done all they could to get the pro­mo­tion.

The Phoenix opened their ac­count at the week­end with goals to Jay­den Prosser and Michael Farmer in the first half.

Farmer scored his sec­ond to make the lead 3-0, be­fore Corey Bar­clay gave the crowd a high­light, hit­ting a shot from the edge of the box to score the goal of the game.

“They cre­ated a lot of chances and grabbed the win,” Novello said.

“You can­not do more than that at the end of the day.”

This week­end the Phoenix bat­tle Gos­nells City Foot­ball Club in their fi­nal game, while United take on Can­ning City.

Novello said the team wanted to fin­ish the sea­son strong in front of their sup­port­ers.

“We just want to get a good re­sult for the home crowd,” he said.
