The Riverina Rhinos will be looking to build on the momentum gained from the end of their last game when they take on Tuggeranong United on Saturday.

The Rhinos were creating the better of the chances towards the end of their game against Canberra Olympic which they lost 4-2, but coach Ross Morgan was hopeful they could carry their form into this match.

“We looked dangerous and created some pretty good chances in the last 10-15 against Olympic,” he said.

“If we go in like we finished last time out it should put us in a good position.”

The Rhinos have faced off against Tuggeranong twice this season, once in the league and once in the FFA Cup, with a mixture of results.

It was a close game in the NPL match which ended in a 3-3 draw while the cup game was a different story as the Rhinos fell 8-2 but Morgan feels it's not as clear-cut as that.

“The score in the cup game probably didn’t reflect the game,” he said.

“We know what to expect from them as they like to play the long ball.

“The boys want to finish the season strongly after a slump in the middle and hopefully it can start this weekend.”

Morgan is hopeful the home game will work in their favour as the others have so far this season.

“It is good to have a run of home games,” he said

“There is no doubt the away games have been tough. It is a long day for the boys.

“The last couple of times the bigger sides have come down here we have been able to test them, so we want to make it just a tough for Tuggeranong.”

The Rhinos will head into the game with a mostly unchanged team with Daniel Febo the only change as he comes back into the side after missing last week’s game.

The game gets underway at Yellowtail Park at 3pm.
