Waiting to see if the Heads can strike hard

NAMBUCCA'S chase for a spot in the C.ex Group Women's Division depends on doing what no other team has been able to do this season - defeat Boambee.

Strikers play their last match of the regular season today and need to either cause a massive upset or hope the Woolgoolga 2 team loses to the lowly Urunga 2.

In the Men's Premier League, pacesetter Boambee might've won against fellow finalists Coffs United and Urunga over the past two weeks but the Bombers face another stiff challenge this weekend with a clash against the fourth placed Northern Storm.

Even though the Bombers are undefeated in 2018, coach Shane Duncan is expecting the Storm to trouble his outfit.

"They (the Storm) are very tough and they're still playing for a spot in the four so they'll come out and give it everything they've got,” he said.

"It's going to be a tough game.”

Maclean currently trails the Storm on the table by three points and 11 goals but the Bobcats will be hoping to close the gap with a win over the Westlawn Tigers.
