CALIVIL United is expecting a different, tougher Newbridge team when they play on Saturday.

The last time the two Loddon Valley League teams met, Calivil won by 19 goals.

That was in the first round, nine games on and Calivil is on top of the ladder and Newbridge is fifth.

“Newbridge were missing a few players in the first game, so I'm expecting it to be a tougher match this time round,” said Calivil coach Karen Pascoe.

“We're always looking to go better in the second game, but it will be a big task to defeat Newbridge by 20 goals.”

Pascoe said her side would also be missing players who played in the first game of the season.

“I think it will be a different game for both sides this weekend.”

In Calivil United's past four games it has averaged more than 61 goals and kept the opposition to less than 30 goals.

“We're very happy with how our season has gone so far, but our girls are very determined to improve their game,” Pascoe said.

“We are relatively settled, but are very lucky to have a number of options and combinations we can play with.”

In other LVNL games, third placed YCW will take on sixth placed Pyramid Hill.

Marong will host the winless Inglewood at Malone Park.

Marong is chasing its fourth win of the season.

Mitiamo has the bye.
