Pre-Match Comments

“We need to look at the first game of the season. Lochar have some good players in their squad, they work hard for each other as well, and they’ve got a good team spirit.

We know it’ll be a difficult test, as it was in the opening game of the season. We went down in that one before coming back to win, we’ll need to make sure we don’t make it as hard for ourselves this time.

They’ve been a bit inconsistent, winning game you wouldn’t expect but dropping points where you wouldn’t either. On their day they can give a game to anybody though, we need to turn up with the right attitude and get the three points.”
