Hayden Doyle suffered an injury last week and Bayswater City is sweating on his diagnosis.

BAYSWATER City coach Chris Coyne hopes his players continue to thrive on good form against Perth Glory on Saturday.

Coyne said he wanted the team to improve each week.

“I know it is cliched, however my philosophy will not change and we will only be taking it a week at a time and showing every opponent the utmost respect,” Coyne said.

Coyne said the players trained strongly at a gym session at Surge Gym in Kings Square.

“The level of intensity was mirrored on Thursday night so we are looking forward to playing a very good Perth Glory squad,” he said.

Bayswater jumped to the top of the ladder after a tight win against Balcatta last week.

But the win came at a cost, with midfielder Hayden Doyle succumbing to a knee injury.

Coyne said the club was still waiting with a “ bated breath” for Doyle’s scans to come back.

“It would be a huge loss if Hayden is ruled out but after speaking with him at length the other night he is super positive to handle whatever is thrown at him and it speaks volumes about his character,” he said.

“One players’ misfortune is often how others get their opportunities and it is funny how often players step up once they are given that chance.

“Obvious candidates are (Andrija) Jukic and Shurama but we are also looking at blooding Taban Makoi and Jamie Murphy who have bundles of potential and it is exciting that they will be a huge part of our run in.”

Bayswater takes on Perth Glory tomorrow afternoon at Ashfield Reserve.
