"(The team will) work on some of the things we need to work on and hopefully show a massive improvement next weekend."

Despite the result, O'Sullivan said there were some positives to take away from the match.

"Our possessional play was very good," he said.

"We had a lot of possession - but our decision making and our finishing in the final third were below par."

For Central FC, the team kept its undefeated season in tact with a 1-0 against Rockhampton's Bluebird United FC at Webber Park.

Central Coach Ronald Donald said it was a sloppy game due to the wet conditions.

Clinton FC and Central FC will verse each other for round three this Saturday at Clinton at 7pm.
