Leeton United coach Mick Doolin believes his side are almost back to their best as the Pascoe Cup finals loom large.
His assertion comes in the wake of Leeton’s 5-1 win over Junee on Sunday – their first win since capitulating to a 6-0 loss against Lake Albert last month.
“We finally played some good football again,” Doolin said.
“Our winning margin should’ve probably been bigger but we had lots of shots go off the cross bar and a few off the side too.”
The win coupled with Wagga United’s surprise draw with South Wagga saw Leeton claw their way back into fifth on the ladder with two games remaining.
In a further boost for the side, skipper Joey Fondecaro came away with some valuable game time against the Jaguars in his return from injury.
“Joey didn’t last the full game for us but he gave us plenty of stability through the midfield while he was on and that’s going to be really important in the weeks to come.”
