Gladstone teams to face off

TWO Cap League teams should put on a worthy game of soccer tonight, with Clinton taking on Yaralla at Clinton Park.

Yaralla coach Mark Skelhorn said the team's preparation had not been ideal.

“I'm hoping it will be a great contest, and a good clean game of football,” he said.

“Our defence has been pretty good. They never give up and I think the match will be worth observing.”

In other games, Central travels to Jardine Park to play Southside and the Gladstone-based team should be full of confidence after last week knocking off the top team Cap Coast.

Central coach Aaron Jeffry believes his side will perform well tonight, even with two experienced players missing from the line-up.

“If we play our style of game, I'm confident we will come away with a win,” he said.

Jeffry said the most pleasing aspect of last week's victory was the way the players stuck to the strategy.

“Everyone did their job and I can't ask for more than that,” he told The Observer.

Cap Coast's reaction following the loss has provided Central players with a talking point this week, and they were happy to share their opinions with their opposition.

“There was a lot of banter after the game when the siren went, and our guys gave as good as they got,” the coach said.
