Wolves men at home in two Saturday games

FOOTBALL: The Warwick Wolves need to beat Rockville at 7pm tonight at Queens Park to retain fourth spot in the Toowoomba football premier competition.

Warwick lost 5–2 in premier to the unbeaten West Wanderers last weekend with coach Jon Pearson rating goal scorers Josh Jordan and Matt Carey as his best.

“Rockville is yet to win a game but they have improved out of sight in the past two weeks, so we won’t be taking them lightly,” Pearson said.

Rob Davey will return after missing the game against West Wanderers and will play centre midfield.

Warwick will play Rockville in reserves at 5pm today in Warwick and Pearson is hoping for an improvement on the 5–1 loss last weekend.

“Sam McLennan and Ben O’Dea have been two of our best all season and will both be in the team to play Rockville,” he said.

“It is certain Sam and Ben will also come off the bench in premier; Sam as a striker and Ben in defence.”

Pearson said he was hoping for a large crowd of supporters at the games.

“There is covered seating at the clubhouse and plenty of seating on the grassed mound,” Pearson said.

The Warwick reserves team has improved this season during the Wolves’ return to the Toowoomba competition.

“Jesse Harris is back after a long break and playing well in the midfield,” Pearson said.

The Warwick women will play at Laidley at 11am tomorrow and having last weekend off.

Jamilah Doro is back after playing for the Darling Downs schoolgirls in Townsville last week but her Darling Downs and Wolves teammate Ashleigh Kane is out, due to Sunday netball commitments with Warwick at Goondiwindi.

Doro and Kane were joined by fellow Warwick player Maddy Ross in the Darling Downs team for the state championships.

Junior fixtures continue at Queens Park this weekend with the sixth week of fixtures from early morning today.
