Heading in right direction

EAST Armidale are set to tackle Guyra after what coach Daniel Preston has described as ‘a much-needed weekend away from the football field’.

“Having a bye in the middle of the season seemed to be exactly what the team needed,” Preston said.

The week off saw the team return to training with a new-found focus as they prepare to tackle the back-end of the season.

“The team stepped away and have come back with a bit more fire in their bellies heading into this weekend’s game,” he said.

The last time the two sides met earlier this season Guyra defeated a lacklustre Easts side 3-1.

But this has made the side motivated to dominate play against Guyra tomorrow.

Preston said his side must remain focused for the entire match if they want to dominate their opponents.

“In recent weeks, as soon as we switch off in a game other teams seem to capitalise on this really quickly,” he said.

“Whenever this has happened we tend to go on to lose games.”

Easts are currently sitting in fourth place in the Northern Inland Premier League’s northern conference and Preston said his team are heading in the right direction to remain in the top four.

“We are now focused on playing a game of basic football,” he said.

“I am confident that when we get back to the basics we win games and this will keep us well inside the top four.”

In other games this weekend, Demon Knights will head to Glen Innes, South Armidale go up against Joeys FC and North Armidale have a bye.
