Kitch a likely starter against the academy

FOOTBALL: Bundaberg Toyota Spirit are hoping their skipper Brett Kitching, and star defender Mitch Hodgkinson will recover from injuries in time for the clash with the Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) tomorrow night at Martens Oval.

“Kitch trained pretty strongly on Tuesday night and depending on how he trains on Thursday night, will dictate if he's in the side,” Spirit coach Brett Hambrecht said.

“Mitch Hodgkinson is a 50% chance of playing.”

Their striker Arian Dubroy is still sick and unavailable for selection.

Hambrecht is also looking forward to the return of Matt Doolan.

“Matt's a senior player and I'm looking forward to him playing a major part in the game.”

While the Spirit side is yet to record a victory this season, they continue to improve. Last week they travelled to hostile territory and were beaten 2-1 by the Whitsunday Miners - reducing the scores from their first round home defeat of 6-0.

Tomorrow they are looking for a similar turn-around against QAS with the benefit of a home ground advantage. Former Bundaberg boys Josh Brillante and Koh Satake are likely inclusions for the visitors.
