STIRLING Lions is looking to continue its surge up the NPL WA ladder against ninth-placed Cockburn City on Saturday.

After impressive wins over top sides, including arch rivals Bayswater and fellow finals hopeful Perth, coach Rob Milevski said the team still needed to work on their attack.

“Definitely this week we will focus on the attacking third and hopefully make sure we use those opportunities,” he said.

Milevski said the upcoming clash against Cockburn was not going to “easy”.

“This time of the year, every team is trying to get further up the ladder and be in the top four, so we are expecting a tough game,” he said.

“Cockburn has some quality in their team, their striker Angel Andreas is a quality finisher so he is definitely one player we would need to watch.”

Milevski said midfielder Blamo Qua Qua would return to the squad this week after serving a suspension.

He said his team were taking the “one game at a time” approach.

“Definitely our focus is to remain in that top four and come September we would probably be playing in the top four finals,” he said.
