Quote of the Week: 
“It’s our last [match] this season against them and we’ve played them multiple times. I feel that last time we went to their place, we controlled the game and walked away with a nil-nil draw. We’re looking to change that and win the game now. We’ve done well in the past when we’ve played against them, some things haven't gone our way, but we have to control the controllables and put a performance together to win the game. It’s going to take everyone, and we have to take that mentality until the end of the season because we are so close to what we want to achieve in the season.”
- Head Coach Seb Hines
