Meadowbank United will hope to ignite their faltering season tomorrow against Timaru Boys’ High School at Sir Basil Arthur Park in Timaru.
Bank have notched one win and three losses so far this term and sit sixth on the ladder, but will be targeting all three points against a side that have yet to muster a win.
Timaru Boys’ were on the wrong end of an 8-1 mauling from Northern Hearts last weekend, while Meadowbank’s frustrations continued, with a sombre 1-0 defeat to Mountainview at the Showgrounds.
Bank will be without Mike Seddon, as the midfielder picked up a hamstring injury last weekend, but will be bolstered by the returning Mitchell Greaney and Matt Haywood.
Coach Simon Willetts said his side would play the same formation as last week, with Jai Narayan playing in a more advanced role in what he expected to be a difficult encounter.
“Never take them ( Timaru Boys’ High School) lightly. They’re a side that will grow throughout the season and get better and better,” he said.
“We’re happy with what we’re doing and playing good football but we’ll be disappointed if we don’t get the win.”
