BAYSWATER City have recovered from back-to-back fixtures ahead of a “difficult” clash against Perth Glory, according to coach Chris Coyne.

Coyne said the team’s training workload was “very light” this week after playing games on Saturday and Sunday last weekend.

“They are a fit group, they ran all over ECU Joondalup on Saturday and still had plenty of go in them at the end of the game Sunday,” he said.

“We did correct the goal scoring with six goals in two fixtures but we gave away two very poor goals in the league game against ECU Joondalup.

“If we can cut out individual errors, we will be very hard to beat.”

Coyne said City needed to work on playing as a team and not a team of individuals.

“Players have to be selfish but they also need to be aware of what other players bring to the table and use them to help them as a collective,” he said.

Coyne said Glory were a young and athletic side with some players who have professional contracts.

“They could potentially drop a few first team players in and that one player’s salary would cover our total squad and some,” he said.

“So, they have the ascendency in terms of what they have at their disposal but it will not stop us from trying to beat them.”

Bayswater City faces Perth Glory on April 22 at Frank Drago Reserve.
