BAYSWATER City aims to improve on “one percenters” ahead of its blockbuster clash against ladder leaders and reigning National Premier Leagues WA champions Perth SC.

Coach Chris Coyne said the players had a tough week after its 2-1 loss to Cockburn last week.

“We have put the boys through their paces and they have responded well,” he said.

“They were disappointed and I made sure that they understood how I felt after the game but they are men and they need to take it in their strides and give it everything every week.”

Coyne said there would be changes to the side for the match against Perth SC.

“They need to take ownership of their roles in the team, they need to win individual battles and they need to run games out harder,” he said.

“There will be changes as we didn’t play well and we didn’t win.

“But they have a week to redeem themselves and ensure that their names are on the list come Saturday.”

Coyne said Perth was their archrivals as they always played tough encounters.

“We will make it as tough or as easy as we wish,” he said.

“If we work hard and do what I have asked the players we will be okay, if we don’t then it gets tough.”

Bayswater City faces Perth SC at home tomorrow at 3pm.
