Griffith City One taking on Hanwood White in GDFA

Following a record win over West Griffith last weekend, Griffith City One will face a tough test when they take on Hanwood White.

The City side was able to put a record 10 past Wests on their way to climbing into the top four for the first time on goal difference.

Knowing how important goal difference could be at the end of the season coach Pat Cirillo pushed his team to get as many as possible.

“Going into the weekend Hanwood (Blue) were eight goals ahead of us,” he said.

“We are really happy with how we have been playing.

“Especially holding on to a clean sheet in the last two games.”

Their opponents for the weekend in Hanwood White have been the form team in this year’s competition and Cirillo knows his side will be up against it.

“It is a huge test and we want to test ourselves against the best in the competition,” he said.

“We have come along way since the start of the season and this is where we want to be.

“We are under no illusion of the difficulty we face on the weekend but if we can spring an upset or even get a draw that would be a bonus.”

Cirillo knows it is a side full of quality so it will come down to limiting their chances.

“They are good all over the pitch with guys like Daniel Johnson, Kyle Greaves and Andrew Gamble,” he said.

“They are very quick and have the ability to create plenty of chances.

“If we are able to limit their chances while also taking ours, which was an issue early, it should put us in a good position.”

Hanwood White are also coming into the game after a big 10-0 win over Griffith City Two and are yet to lose a game this season with just two rounds remaining before finals.

In the game between the two side in round six saw the Hanwood side come away with a 4-0 win.

The game will get underway at 3pm on Sunday afternoon as the second of a double header at Hanwood Oval.
