STIRLING Lions hope to capitalise on their strong form against third-placed Perth on Sunday after springing a surprise 3-0 defeat on league leaders Bayswater last weekend.
Lions coach Rob Milevski said Sunday posed another big test for the club’s top four aspirations.
“Going away to play Perth will not be easy but we are expecting (our players) to go there and put on an excellent affair; hopefully we will win the three points,” he said.
“Perth plays a very attractive brand of football and they have got some good players there, particularly some good young players coming through.
“They have a very experienced forward (in Gustavo Catarcione), he is the top goal-scorer at the moment; he is definitely a player we would need to watch.”
Milevski said it was the club’s goal to play finals.
“We are just taking it game by game and hopefully be in the top four at the end of the season and prepare for finals towards the end,” he said.
“At the same time, it is good to give some of the youth boys an opportunity, it is another good step forward for them and a good step forward for the club.”
Milevski said youth players were a chance to keep their spots in the side this weekend.
“We will see how training will go during the week and there will be competition for spots this weekend with a couple of players coming back,” he said.
