East Coast Bays football club (FC) will take on top of the table Onehunga Sports FC in one of the more entertaining clashes this weekend.
Bays will travel to Waikaraka Park for a three o’clock start aiming for their fifth win of the season against an Onehunga.
The North Shore club has had mixed results so far this season with four wins and four losses, but Bays defender, Logan Archer, is confident they can beat them if they can “play to the best of their abilities”.
Mr Archer says, earning a win on the weekend will show the team they can beat anyone in the league.
“They are the team to beat. If you beat Onehunga you know you can be confident in taking on any other team in the league and have a fair belief in yourself,” says Mr Archer.
Bays have scored just 11 goals from eight games this season with former top scorer Dylan Stansfield sitting on zero goals.
However, Mr Archer says goals will come for striker Dylan Stansfield who is creating all the chances for the visitors.
“He’s at least going to get three or four good opportunities to score and I’m sure if he can take at least one or two of them Onehunga will be on the ropes,” says Mr Archer.
Onehunga will be looking to maintain their dominance within the league after winning both the NRFL Premiership and Chatham Cup last season.
Coach Hiroshi Miyazawa was approached for comment, but was unable to be contacted before Saturday’s game.
