Bingera faces must-win clash with United Park

FOOTBALL: Treating the match like a mini grand final, Bingera knows their season is on the line.

Currently in fourth position, today Bingera faces the United Park Eagles, who are one point behind them for the last spot in the men's Wide Bay League finals.

With the Eagles having one game in hand over the opposition, a loss could hand them the advantage with three rounds to go.

Bingera coach Lucas Read said the team needs a positive result.

"If we don't win we won't make the semi-finals," he said.

"Despite that, I don't think the boys are too stressed about the pressure on the game."

Unfortunately for Bingera, their form hasn't been great heading into the clash.

With two straight losses, including a 5-0 loss to Sunbury, Read said the team needs to concentrate more.

"We're just making silly mistakes at the moment," he said.

"We also need to be able to not have lapses in the first 10 minutes."

In what will be a tough game for both sides desperate for a win, Read said Bingera's attack needs to be strong.

"We need to finish our chances in the final third," he said.

"It's a 50/50 game and we won't be changing much from the last few weeks."

"Hopefully, it will be business as usual and we remain in the top four."

The two sides will face off at Martens Oval at 6pm.
