This Saturday’s clash against Langwarrin will throw up a critical opportunity for Morwell Pegasus to secure itself more firmly in the top half of the State League Division One south-east competition.
The weekend’s two-all draw against the Doncaster Rovers was a disappointment for coach Luke Cheney – who is determined to set the team up for a pressure-free second half of the season.
“It was a big improvement on Mornington,” Cheney said.
“We had plenty of chances and dominated the game, but when you don’t take your chances, you don’t win.
“Games like that are a must for me as a coach. When you get the opportunity for three points, you take them.”
In third place on the ladder, a win would put Pegasus four points ahead of Langwarrin.
“My goal is to keep us in our front forward pack, so mid-season we’re in the top four.
“That way, three quarters through, we’re not fighting for relegation.
“We’ve got the squad to do it. It’s just up to us now,” Cheney said.
He said Pegasus would go into the away match “for the three points”.
“It’s work in progress. We’re just finding our feet.
“There are a lot of unknowns in the first half of the season.”
