HEAD-TO-HEAD BATTLE: Demon Knights’ Geoff Donnan (left) fights off Gunnedah’s Shane Compton.DEMON Knights overcame a listless start to outclass Gunnedah United in a convincing 3-0 win at Rologas on Saturday.
Demon Knights coach Alan Waddle said the result was living up to the expectations of the team.
“We are a stronger side than Gunnedah, and a lot of people expected us to come away with the win,” he said.
“The lads played well, and everyone played a crucial role in the result,” he said.
Waddle was critical of his team’s lacklustre start.
“In the first half we were really flat, and at half-time I impressed upon them that to secure the win we needed to really lift,” Waddle said.
Demon Knights have only lost one game, but Waddle has warned against future complacency.
“We want to win every game, and we must take each game as it comes,”he said.
“But in order to do that, we cannot underestimate any team that we come up against, and we cannot take our current form for granted.”
Meanwhile, East Armidale were not met with the same level success when they faced Wee Waa, going down 3-1.
Despite scoring the first goal of the game, Easts coach Daniel Preston said the players never really fired.
“In the first half, we were the first to score, but we weren’t playing great soccer,” he said.
“We kind of just went to sleep, and then we never woke up.”
Easts are currently trying new tactics, but Preston has said that a number of losses and lack of team gelling, will see the team head back to basics.
“We have been trying some new things and in the earlier part of the season we performed well.”
“As we head into the second half of the season, we’ll focus on the basics and hopefully this will get us back into the winning mode,” he said.
In other games, South Armidale came within striking distance of defending premiers Oxley Vale Attunga, but were narrowly defeated 6 –5.
North Armidale continued their winning streak, defeating North Companions 3-1.
