Wolves set sights on Wanderers

WARWICK Wolves coach Peter Osborn has his fingers crossed his premier-division side can record a win against West Wanderers at Queens Park on Sunday.

Osborn was happy with the two games against last year's premiers South Hawks at Harristown on Sunday.

"We lost by one goal in premier and reserves, but if two close decisions by the referees went our way, we could have drawn both games," Osborn said.

"A number of our players backed up for a second game, which makes our performances even better.

"The two games were our best performances in Toowoomba this season."

Dom Benz and Jamie Saunders scored in the premier side's 3-2 loss to South Hawks, while Nick Lockley scored in the Warwick 2-1 reserves loss. Osborn said Gerard Settgast and Joshua Jordan had moved from juniors to seniors in the past few games and both impressed on Sunday.

"They are improving each game as they become accustomed to senior football," Osborn said.

On Sunday at 2.30pm, Cameron Davey will return from suspension for the Warwick defence in the premier division.

Vet Simon Lever missed last week with work commitments and Osborn hopes Nick Kemp can return from a fractured collarbone.

"We lost reserves by one to Wanderers and premier by two in round one but both teams have improved," Osborn said.

"We are undefeated in our past three premier games in Warwick."

The Wolves have an extra Winstanley Cup match in Toowoomba tonight.
