LOCKINGTON-BAMAWM United may still be attempting to claim a maiden victory in 2017 this weekend when it comes up against a top five side in White Hills.
LBU is yet to put its first win on the board but coach Peter Gibbs went into every game with a belief in winning.
‘‘If we can bring the intensity we showed in the first half against North Bendigo there’s no reason we can’t sneak in a win this week,’’ Gibbs said.
‘‘It’s definitely a massive challenge for us though the boys are prepared to meet it head on and give it a red hot crack.
‘‘Every team is a challenge and (tomorrow) won’t be easy, but nothing in life is easy.’’
White Hills recruited well this season and were an up and coming side sitting 3-1.
But Gibbs felt the Cats had the makings of a strong side even if they lacked a couple of tall, key players.
‘‘Our defence end has really surprised me this season,’’ Gibbs said.
‘‘The midfield has always been good and there’s a lot of class, but there’s a combination of things we need to juggle in getting our balance right.
‘‘Everyone is starting to know one another a little better which has helped but our fitness is letting us down.’’
Skipper Marcus Angove and Liam Main were two of the best performers this season and would be looked to tomorrow to get the Cats across the line.
The week off wasn’t ideal for the travelling players who needed as many games as possible under their belts to gel with the team.
