GOLDEN Gully captain Brendon Lummis is optimistic about his side's chances of causing an upset in the Emu Valley Cricket Association when the Cobras host United.
Golden Gully and United will meet at California Gully Oval in round two of the EVCA starting Saturday.
Both sides were victorious last week. Golden Gully opened its season with a 60-run win over Maiden Gully, while United defeated West Bendigo by 11 runs in a high-scoring contest.
Golden Gully has struggled against United in recent years, but Lummis believes the Cobras have what it takes to challenge the Tigers.
I reckon we're more than capable of causing an upset
"We're missing five or six this week, but we've been able to replace them with some handy players, so I think we'll be able to go alright," said Lummis, who made 64 last week.
"I reckon we're more than capable of causing an upset."
Lummis believes one of the keys to his side's chances of an upset is the Cobras' strike bowlers in recruit Cameron Moore and Shaun O'Shea.
"We got Cameron from Wandella. He's a fantastic bowler," Lummis said.
"He bowls with good pace, line and length, so he has been a really good pick-up for us."
Moore began the season with 1-17 off eight overs.
Moore and O'Shea will have a big job against the talented United batting line-up, which had opener Tim Elliott (86) and captain Forbes Klemm (54) both make half-centuries in last week's score of 8-287 against West Bendigo.
