One game at a time suits the Redbacks

REDBACKS coach Jason Wright hasn't a mental picture of the date of the 2014 Darling Downs AFL grand final.

Despite his side having seven wins from seven games, he believes the "one game at a time" wording is very relevant as the club prepares to host South Toowoomba

Bombers in a top-four game on Sunday played at Reddies Oval.

"I have been in teams which have won all year and lost the grand final.

"That happened to me in 2000 at Coolaroo when Warwick didn't field a team," Wright said.

"If we win our next two games, we are almost guaranteed top two."

After seven games, captain Alex Cutmore said Coolaroo and Goondiwindi had proved they would be the toughest teams this season.

Even though Goondiwindi is in sixth place, he said the Hawks had the potential to make the top four.

"Surprisingly this year there has been little difference between our performances at home and away, in previous years we have struggled in some games on the road, particularly against the Toowoomba teams," Cutmore said.
