Eagles ready to storm Korora

BOAMBEE remain unbeaten despite a close shave against Coffs United and coach Glenn Bennett will resist ideas of changing the formula for today's meeting with Northern Storm.

The Eagles edged out Coffs United last week 2-1 with Bennett heaping praise on rival goalkeeper Shelby Mackenzie for an astonishing effort.

"We attacked the goal about 30 times with four genuine scoring chances and she kept pushing them away," he said.

"Unless Cyclones' goalie can do the same thing, I believe we will win pretty well.

"We have the strongest attack and it pays dividends, so no need to change that policy."

Depth in reserve grade has allowed the team to put 11 fresh players in the starting line-up each week and that's one of the foundations for success.

"With around 16 reserves to call on I try to at least bring up forward, midfielder and fullback each week to sit on the bench," Bennett said.

"It doesn't always work, such as when we battled through with one substitute against Maclean and still managed to win.

"If we start fresh it means we are really strong for that vital last 10 minutes."
