Blacktown City FC not looking too far ahead


After their impressive 4-1 drumming of Sydney Olympic last weekend, Blacktown sit on top of the table with the Marconi Stallions on 10 points, but assistant coach Mark Crittenden does not believe his team are competitions heavyweights.
“I wouldn?t say we are the good yet,?? Crittenden said.
“I could say everything is going good for us at this stage of the competition.
“We know that the competition is very fierce. Marconi is a very good side as is Bonnyrigg.
“At the moment things are running very nicely and we are happy with the way we are going.??
The men from Lily Holmes Stadium had a star studded bench with Luke Roodenburg, Jordan Simpson and Kain Rastall against Sydney Olympic, and after a great performance by the stand ins Crittenden has welcomed the selection headache.
“It is going to be a very tough call for us,?? he said.
“The guys that came in did a very good job. We have a squad of about 16 or 17 boys that can all feature in the starting line up so it is a good headache for us.??
Taking on the West Sydney Berries this weekend, Crittenden is weary of a wounded side who were pummelled 5-1 by Bankstown City FC last week.
“I don?t think you can underestimate any team in the competition,?? he said.
“The Berries are a very workman like team. You just have to go into every game with the right attitude and those positive results will come.
Blacktown will face the West Sydney Berries at Lily Holmes Stadium this Sunday afternoon with kick off set for 6pm.
