Soccer: All systems go with Bayswater City for match against Perth Glory

BAYSWATER City Soccer Club players are prepared to give everything to try and win the National Premier League WA (NPLWA), starting with Perth Glory on Sunday.

With just four rounds to go, City is sitting in third place on 44 points while Perth Glory sit in 13th place on 15 points.

City coach Chris Coyne said his players were in “high spirits” at training this week.

“We have ensured that the players’ bodies have been looked after to ensure that they are ready to perform on Sunday,” he said.

“I think that the extra day’s break will benefit us as the pitch was quite heavy against ECU Joondalup.

“We are 100 per cent fit and raring to go so we look forward to a tough test against the Glory’s next generation.”

Coyne said Bor Bor Sam, David Stokoe, Devon Spence and Sam Mitchinson, who were playing for the WA state team at a Tri Series tournament, would be on light duties this week.

City have won their last five games but Coyne said his team still needed to improve on their defence and work harder and smarter from the front against Glory.

“They are well versed in playing out from the back so must make sure that we all know our jobs,” he said.

“They are a professional outfit with the best young players in the state.

“They should be a very difficult opponent as they prepare to play in the national youth league against all the other future stars of Australian football.”

Coyne said while City would continue their premiership push, they needed Inglewood United to get “déjà vu” and fade away from top spot like last year.
