GISBORNE netball coach Kerryn Jorgenson says her team is more settled compared to the last time they met Maryborough.

Jorgenson and her team are expecting another tough battle against Maryborough in the Bendigo Netball League on Saturday.

The last time the two played, only six goals separated the two at the final whistle in round two.

Since then the two teams have been in good form.

Gisborne has won six out of eight games and Maryborough has won five.

“They (Maryborough) have been pushing some of the better teams this season, so we are expecting a tough match,” Jorgenson said.

“We will be ready to go.”

Jorgenson said the A-grade team had changed since round two.

“The team is a lot more settled. We are in a much better place now then where we were back then,” she said.

“We have more back-up options, players who are a lot more versatile and can play in different positions, especially if we are down in a particular area. We have definitely improved as a team.

“We have no injuries; we have a full list ready to play.”

The game will be played at Gardiner Reserve at 3.20pm.

South Bendigo will be chasing its fourth-straight win when it takes on the in-form Golden Square.

The Bulldogs are comfortably sitting inside the top four and are just two points behind Kangaroo Flat and Kyneton, who are in equal first position.

Strathfieldsaye is also taking on Eaglehawk, Kangaroo Flat will play Castlemaine, and Kyneton will host Sandhurst in the final match of round 11.
