Woodies look to maintain momentum
The 2nd placed Woodsmen take on 4th placed Morningside in what promises to be a quality encounter at the Berg tonight.
These 2 sides have already played twice this year, with the Woodies enjoying a 2 point and 7 point win - so its expected to be another tough match with plenty on the line with Morningside looking to secure a finals spot, while the Woodies look to guarantee the double chance.
Once again, the Woodies have a raft of changes from a dominant win last week - saying goodbye to a few key contributors, as well as welcoming back the nucleus of the starting midfield.
Out of the side go the important Tim Green from CHB and Dom Morrison back to the reserves after filling in with a BOG performance last week. Also out are debutants Ben Ness, first year player Rick Masterson, club stalwart Greg Matthews and a couple of other handy 'fill in's in Reid Dobson and Monty Vine. Elliot Heath is also out with hamstring after backing up for the reserves last week.
Amongst a raft of ins, former Western Magpie star Dean Parkin makes his Woody Debut in a one of appearance after 12 years out of the game! 'The Raven' is in town for BG Day and will be looking to put in a good show after so long out of the game with some of his old teammates from the early 2000's still getting around for the Woodies.
Other important ins are Jay Baker, Jake Fuentes, Matt Hockley, Matt Garland and Lachlan Woods who will all play important roles.
Get on down to the club for the start of a big weekend when all senior sides take on Morningside.
