For SC Corinthians and Diggers this weekend will be the opportunity to do something they haven’t done this season.
Score points in the Wide Bay Premier League.
The two Bundaberg sides will face each other at Martens Oval tomorrow night with both sides not winning or drawing a match this season.
The Diggers have not won in five matches and SC Corinthians in six.
But both have been close.
Diggers in the opening two weeks could have got a draw or a win against Granville or Doon Villa, while SC Corinthians pushed the United Park Eagles all the way last week in a 3-2 loss.
SC Corinthians coach Tim Lunnon said it was a good result.
“I thought in the first half we played pretty poorly,“ he said.
“In the second half we turned it around and were unlucky not to score a third.“
Lunnon said the team was the best it’s put on the park this year, minus the two players that are out for the season.
It showed, with this the first game the team has scored all season and the closest margin to a draw or victory for the side.
Lunnon said the addition of captain Josh Lunnon had helped, and he assisted one of the goals in the second half.
“That was Josh’s first full game back since he was injured,“ Lunnon said.
“We’ve had him out, and he scored 16 goals last season in Wide Bay League 2, and also Hayden Slater who scored 27.“
Lunnon said that had hurt the team in scoring.
Now with Lunnon back, and the form of the team, he’s confident of getting something out of the game against Diggers.
For Diggers, they will be hoping to bounce back after three successive defeats by more than five goals.
The team has conceded 24 goals over the past three rounds and not scored a goal in that time themselves.
Diggers will be hoping to bounce back after losing 7-0 to the KSS Jets.
The game starts at 6pm, with Bingera taking on The Waves at Bingera Grounds at the same time in another game.
The other fixtures include Granville taking on Brothers Aston Villa, the United Park Eagles take on Sunbury, while Doon Villa faces the Fraser Flames.
Bingera are now on top of the ladder after beating Sunbury 4-1 last week.
The team is three points ahead of The Waves who won 6-1 against Doon Villa with the Fraser Flames (5-2) beating Granville.
