BAYSWATER City players are looking to take their chances against the seventh-placed Armadale tomorrow.

City sit in second place and two points behind Perth Glory on the National Premier League WA ladder after dropping the past two games.

Coach Chris Coyne said his players have been put “on-notice” after the past two performances.

“We as a group will not accept the level that we have shown and are looking for a response,” he said.

“The quality is still there but the application, desire and work ethic have been lacking and we have not been beaten because we have been outplayed we have been out fought and I will not accept that from my teams.

“There are no new injury concerns with Adam Harris taken off as a precaution but we welcome back Brent Griffiths after suspension.”

Coyne said he was not concerned with the way his team had played.

“We are creating a number of chances and we will give someone a hiding shortly,” he said.

“What the players need to do, and this is not all of them, that hard work and desire is a prerequisite of success.

“Good teams play well but work themselves into the ground and do all the one-percenters well.”

He said Armadale was a well-organised side under coach John O’Reilly and had added a lot of quality players this year.

“They are capable of scoring from various positions and will be very tough at their place to get a result,” he said.

The two sides will face off at Alfred Skeet Reserve tomorrow.
