Southcity has been struck a blow heading into the clash with Tumbarumba with captain-coach Nick Skinner to miss Saturday’s game with an ankle injury.
The Bulls’ finals place is not completely secured yet but they will also go into the game with without Mick Glanville.
Skinner sprained his ankle in the narrow two-point loss to Cootamundra on Saturday while Glanville was denied the chance to take on his former club after injuring his hamstring in the club’s last training session.
Skinner is confident he’ll be fight for the first round of the finals, however Glanville’s issue will require more time on the sidelines.
The Bulls are currently third, level with Albury and Kangaroos, and a win ahead of Young, but their percentage will be enough to secure a finals place even if they the winless Greens pull off the surprise of the season.
With four wins out of their last five games, Skinner is looking to use the game as a way to build into the finals.
“It’s very important with semi-finals the week after,” he said.
“We want to make sure we build a bit of momentum coming from this game.”
There hasn’t been a lot in any of the Bulls four losses, with three of them coming against premiership contenders, Junee, Southcity and Albury.
Despite the poor run, Skinner isn’t too concerned.
“It’s been a bit hit and miss but I think we know what to do to get back on the right track,” he said. “It’s just a matter of doing it.
“I like we’ve been a bit flat, expecting this to happen but I have full confidence we can turn it all around.”
