MARYYBOROUGH co-coaches Jamie Bond and Glen Chadwick have drilled into their players all week the importance of not dropping off their intensity.
The Magpies produced four quarters of sustained pressure against Golden Square last week, which was the backbone of their stunning 13-point upset.
On Sunday, they will be aiming to back up last week’s performance with an equally as determined effort against South Bendigo at the QEO.
“With a young side you never know what you’re going to get, but we’ve spoken all week about making sure we turn up with the same attitude as last Saturday,” Bond said.
Meanwhile, Castlemaine and Kyneton will be both striving to end seven-game losing streaks in their BFL clash on Saturday.
The two country foes lock horns at Camp Reserve, with neither side having won since round eight.
“We started to see some good signs against Strathfieldsaye last week, and to kick nine goals against them was reasonable,” Tigers coach Mark Adamson said.
“Our ability to move the ball and maybe score more effectively gives us a chance to hopefully, kick a winning score on Saturday.”
