Manly United vs NWS Koalas – Womens Reserve Grade Preliminary Final Preview
KNOWING they are potentially just 90 minutes away from a spot in the grand final will ensure Manly United hit the ground running against NWS Koalas this Sunday.
Almost a fortnight ago United paid the price versus the same opposition.
They recovered from 3-0 down to eventually lose 3-2, and the playing group are well aware a flying start is imperative this weekend at Jensen Park.
“We certainly need to be better in a few areas,” striker Jess Wootton said.
“Koalas are a quality side, they are experienced across the park and disciplined.
“I’ll still back us to win, with Maddy Zahra, Nicole Stuart and Kristie Crawford all looking good, I think we will have too many attacking weapons for them.”
Teenager Ellie Kerr, who scored a brace last start against the Emerging Jets, stressed the need to stay positive and to work hard as a team.
Kick-off is 1.30pm.
