Neville Clark plays his 150th senior match for South Bendigo on Saturday.

NOT for the first time this season, forward line efficiency has been the major point of focus for South Bendigo this week.

The Bloods kicked just seven goals and lost to Kangaroo Flat by 44 points last week, despite having similar inside-50 entries to the Roos at the QEO.

Inability to capitalise on the scoreboard has been the consistent issue for South Bendigo this season, with the Bloods having kicked seven goals or less in four of their six defeats.

On Saturday the Bloods make the trip to Princes Park to take on Maryborough in what's a battle of the BFL's two winless teams.

South Bendigo's seven goals last week included five from recruit Josh Whelan.

"We played some good football last week, but couldn't get the score on the board, so our forward structure is certainly an area that we've been working on during the week," Bloods co-coach Peter Tyack said on Friday.

"Kicking seven goals last week and having five from one player... we need a few more players to put their hand up and produce some more goals for us.

"We've tried to address it, but in the heat of battle, we'll see what happens. The boys are all very keen to get over to Maryborough and work to chalk up that first win for the year."

Meanwhile, after playing his 200th club game last week, Neville Clark will play his 150th senior game for the Bloods on Saturday.
