After a disappointing finish to their game last week against Bendigo, the Swinburne Cobras will be looking for redemption against the Pioneers.
Kilsyth remain in second place on the ladder two games behind Bendigo. But their loss has cut their advantaged over Knox, Brisbane and Ballarat who all continue to win.
Kilsyth were not themselves against the Braves last week as Bendigo used a 29-6 final quarter run to send the Swinburne Cobras to their biggest loss of the season.
Mt Gambier come into the match having lost last week 81-74 against NW Tasmania and currently sit 6th in the South Conference at 7-9. The Pioneers will visit Kilsyth with three wins from the past five matches.
Fernandez Lockett and Matt O’Hea will have some added motivation this week. After leading Kilsyth over the past month both players were well held against Bendigo.
Auryn Macmillan has been an impact player for Coach Grant Wallace in his first two games in the League but should find his playing time and production increase as he becomes more familary with the Kilsyth system.
For Mt Gambier, Dallas Jeffree, Andrew Rice, Andy Tipton and Erik Burdon will be the major threats having scored the majority of the Pioneers points in 2010.
A win is a must for the Swinburne Cobras if they are going to keep those below them at bay and continue to put pressure on Bendigo should they slip up.
Tip off is scheduled for 2.00pm on Sunday. Get down to the Kilsyth Sports Centre and show your support to the Swinburne Kilsyth Cobras.
