After a tough FFA Cup game against Tuggeranong United, the Rhinos face another tough challenge on their return to action in the National Premier League.
They are talking on second placed Canberra FC who they played in their first game of the season and were defeated 7-0.
Assistant coach Gabriel Abdala said the results aren’t the important factor for his side and making sure they are competitive.
“It is about enforcing the positives,” he said.
“We have to encourage the boys by telling them they are on the right track.
“We are taking this as another game.”
It was also a new experience for the side against Tuggeranong which saw them playing under lights which saw them in conditions they were not used to.
The side will be going into the match against Canberra FC unchanged after members of the under 18s side stepped up and according to Abdala they didn’t look out of place.
Abdala has encouraged football fans to get out to Yellowtail Park in Yoogali.
“We are representing Griffith and the Riverina as a whole,” he said.
“The more people there the better it is for us.”
The first-grade game starts at 3pm with footballing action getting underway with the top of the table under 18s clash starting at 11am.
