Meadowbank confident of win

Meadowbank United will be looking to gain their second away win of the season when they head to Timaru on Saturday to take on Mountainview FC.

Bank will be intent on getting their season back on track with a win over the fourth-placed side.

Attacking prowess will be crucial to the Oamaru side’s chances following their 3-2 defeat at the hands of West End A.

Mountainview FC will be full of confidence following a 5-1 mauling of winless Timaru Boys’ High last weekend.

Meadowbank captain Simon Willetts said he was confident his side could get the result they needed, after a frustrating campaign to date.

“They defeated us down here 1-0 last time we played, so we will be looking to go up there and take the points,” he said.

While the attack has been patchy this season, Bank have netted eight goals in the last two weeks and Willetts hopes their hot form will continue.

“We have been scoring goals lately, which is a huge bonus for us,” he said.

Willetts’ side are missing some key personnel, and will be sweating on the fitness of the players involved in the interschool match today.

The match gets under way at 2.45pm.

Meanwhile, the Meadowbank reserve side also travel to Timaru to take on Northern Hearts B at 2.45pm at Aorangi Park 1.
