LADDER leaders Bayswater City is looking forward to a hard game against rivals Inglewood United in its National Premier League WA round 4 clash on Saturday.

City has won three straight games to start the season, while fifth-placed United have won one game and drawn twice.

Coach Chris Coyne said he was impressed with his players so far but he was excited by the younger boys coming through the ranks.

“The preparation has been excellent and the boys have been in great spirits,” he said.

“They are looking forward to a hard game with a team that has become a big rival in recent years.

“We are happy with the amount of goals we have scored and two clean sheets in the last two weeks is something we would like to build on.

“I would like to see us keep the ball better and move teams around more to create even more chances.”

Coyne said only Clarke Keltie was missing in the squad this week while Brent Griffiths could be available for a return.

“We are in a good position with Adam Harris, Luka Ninkovic and David Stokoe all available this weekend after missing last week,” he said.

He said Inglewood was an excellent team and coach Andy Keogh would have them prepared for the game.

“They can score goals from all areas of the pitch so we need to ensure that we are really organised,” he said.

The teams will face off at Frank Drago Reserve on March 17.
