We booked second spot on the ladder and a clash with Greensborough in the qualifying final after an easy win over Lower Plenty last week.
However, victory came at a cost with Lucas Hobbs, Reece Geary and Joel Kidd succumbing to injuries. The good news is that Jack Langford is back from Essendon’s VFL side while Anthony Doherty and Brad Leggett return after being spelled last week. It should be a cracking game against our old rivals at Preston City Oval – a win puts us in the second semi-final against Heidelberg next week while a loss means we are in a cut-throat first semi-final against Bundoora or Northcote Park.
