COMING back from a shock loss to Orbost-Snowy Rovers, Bosidale-Briagolong will face Paynesville at home during round seven of East Gippsland football.
The Bombers were overrun right at the end, as Orbost recorded its first win for the year, by 11 points.
Given the Bombers’ recent form, maybe there’s just something in the water in Orbost which provided a proper home ground advantage.
Paynesville has had a rough year since its round one win, but the same strong effort that went into the Bombers’ wins over Lakes Entrance, Lindenow, and Wy Yung should make the Gulls no challenge on Saturday.
STRATFORD, also bouncing back from a loss to Lakes Entrance, will head to Wy Yung.
The Tigers are in good form, and can smell blood — they’re barely 15 percentage points behind Stratford on the ladder, and a win here could potentially push them to the top, if Lakes narrowly loses to Lucknow.
The Swans’ high-powered forward line, leading the goal kicking chart after six rounds, could give them the edge here.
LUCKNOW will take on Lakes Entrance in another crucial game.
The top four is still fluid, so should the Seagulls score a strong win, it’ll keep them up top for another week, while a loss could put anyone on top.
Both teams have been competitive all season, and this should be a close match.
ORBOST-SNOWY Rovers heads west to Lindenow, and could make it two from two.
The burst of confidence will have to carry over for much longer to rescue the Blues’ season, though one must admit Lindenow, on two wins from six, haven’t impressed.
