Lions out to put gap on upbeat Tigers
SAMUEL DAVIS Leichhardt to a miraculous 2-1 win at Tiger Park last time the two teams met.
But Edge Hill president Glen Waddingham said the former FNQ Heat star would be closely minded, with the Tigers aiming to keep a clean sheet at home tomorrow.
“Cam coming back from the NPL gives them a lot of experience,” Waddingham said.
With fourth-placed Leich- hardt only marginally ahead of Edge Hill on the ladder, Lions captain Tom Orr said a win would give some welcome breathing space between the two clubs.
“Obviously, we’ve played there earlier this year and got a good result and hopefully we can replicate that,” Orr said.
“They’ve welcomed some new players into the team but we want to to keep our inten- sity at a high level. I feel like we’ve played quite well the last two weeks so it would be good to maintain that.”
Leichhardt this weekend will be without midfielder Josh Mulla, who received a red card during their 2-0 loss to Marlin Coast Rangers last Sunday.
“It hurts to lose Josh,” Orr said.
We may change our formation to help with that. Who- ever comes though will be able to play a role for us.”
Waddingham said Tigers coach Paul Fitzgerald had worked hard to bring the team together this season.
“Paul really wants to create strong relationships within the group,” he said.
