“To be bru­tally hon­est we’re still in pre-sea­son mode. It’s go­ing to take time to put dif­fer­ent philoso­phies in play,” Thomp­son said.

“We need a lot of match prac­tice but in say­ing that, we haven’t con­ceded a goal in the last two games and we’ve scored six, which is promis­ing.”

On Satur­day WFC will play Mag­pies, who are com­ing off a 7-5 win over Wan­der­ers, at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark from 6.30pm.

Michael Lyall was the star for the win­ners, mirac­u­lously netting six goals on one leg.

Lyall is a known threat in the com­pe­ti­tion but Thomp­son said the pre­mier men knew how to con­tain him.

“We’ve got a plan against him. We’re not ig­nor­ing the fact he scored six goals, he scored two against us in the grand fi­nal last year so we have to take that on board,” he said.
