IN­DIF­FER­ENT form con­tin­ues to plague Whit­sun­day Foot­ball Club’s (WFC) pre­mier men on the eve of fi­nals.

Last year’s grand fi­nal­ists slipped to a 4-1 loss to Mag­pies at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark on Satur­day.

Sa­muel Watt pro­vided the team’s only high­light, kick­ing a sec­ond half goal but the week­end’s game was largely one-way traf­fic for the Mag­pies (sec­ond).

“[It was] pretty dis­ap­point­ing re­ally. We didn’t play to our game plan at all which was dis­ap­point­ing. But at least we can turn it around for fi­nals,” Luke Hillery said fol­low­ing the game.

The pre­mier men re­main in third place ahead of this week’s catch-up game against Mag­pies in Mackay.

Hillery said the team would en­deav­our to stick to the game plan more thor­oughly ahead of the semi-fi­nals on Septem­ber 6.

In other re­sults, the re­serves sealed their fi­nals berth with a 2-1 win over Mag­pies.

First half goals to Owen Hod­gen and Alex Webb sealed the re­sult, leav­ing the re­serves in fourth place on the lad­der.

Like the pre­mier men, the re­serves will be­gin their fi­nals campaign in a fort­night.

This week­end the pre­mier women will re­turn to the park for a game against Lions.

Kick-off is at Wan­der­ers’ fields on Sun­day from 1pm.

Whit­sun­day Foot­ball Club’s Luke Hillery swiftly passes a Mag­pies player at Satur­day’s home match.
