Kings must strike early

IN the GCS premier league, points are at a premium for wooden-spoon front-runners the Tweed Valley Kings.

And with their next three matches all against top-six sides, things aren’t looking too bright for the amalgamated side.

Sporting just two wins and a draw from 13 outings, the Kings are four points adrift of Southport (second-last), firmly with their backs against the wall.

However when the going gets tough the tough get going, and having toppled fifth-placed powerhouses Coomera three weeks ago, the Kings feel they are capable of matching it with the front-runners.

They must again dig deep for this afternoon’s clash with second-placed Broadbeach at Reg Dalton Oval.

They must “chance their arm” on home soil and force Broadbeach onto the back foot from the outset, or the reigning premiers, who have amassed 45 goals already this season, will certainly take the Kings to the cleaners.

An early goal for the Kings is crucial when the action begins from 5pm.
