DEFENDING premiers Bayswater City will be fighting for a “do-or-die” win against ECU Joondalup tomorrow, in order to qualify for the top four cup competition.

City sit in third position on 46 points and are out of the premiership race, with Perth Glory and Perth SC battling it out this weekend.

ECU Joondalup are in sixth on 43 points.

This is the last game of the NPLWA season.

City coach Chris Coyne said the players were needed to win so they were not getting ahead of themselves.

“The boys know that it is a do-or-die game this weekend if we want to make top four and win any silverware this year,” he said.

“So (we) have really been fighting hard to play and get something out of the season.

“There are no injury concerns and we welcome back Griffiths this week from suspension.”

Coyne said ECU had some very good players and were capable of scoring goals from all over the pitch.

“We are under no illusion that this will be a very tough game but we are looking forward to it,” he said.

“At this time of the season, I am not concerned about performance it is all result driven.

“That being said I want them to play an exciting brand of football and really express themselves this week.”

The two sides will face off at 3pm at ECU Joondalup Football Stadium.
