Skipper wary of wounded White Eagles
Manly United skipper Jamie Lobb is wary of a wounded Bonnyrigg heading into Sunday’s clash at Cromer Park.
The White Eagles, who have enjoyed plenty of success versus United in recent years, were beaten 2-0 by Sydney Olympic FC last weekend.
It may only be after one round, but sitting on the bottom of the league is not a situation Brian Brown’s men are used to.
“They (Bonnyrigg) are always tough to play,” Lobb said.
“I can’t see them sitting back and playing defensive, they like to attack at every opportunity.
“Last week (against Sutherland) we were clinical in front of goal which was good, it was the opposite in pre-season.
“We need to keep the ball better and hopefully chalk up back to back wins – making Cromer a difficult place to play for opposing teams is a big goal for the boys this year.”
The new first grade kick-off time is 3.00pm.
