The Waves want to take chance

FOOTBALL: The Waves understand just how important this weekend's Wide Bay League match against the KSS Jets is.

The side will travel to Hervey Bay knowing a win could put them four points clear at the top of the ladder.

And as Bingera and Brothers Aston Villa face each other, in second and third, any result will help The Waves.

"It's a very important game to win for us,” coach Jason De Papi said.

"We need to carry on the form from recent matches.”

The side is unbeaten in its past eight matches, recording seven wins and one draw against Bingera.

But they are not underestimating the Jets despite winning 6-1 in their first meeting this season.

"They are a quality young side who will lift at home against us,” De Papi said.

"We also have to deal with sore bodies from the NewsMail Cup win on Tuesday.”

De Papi conceded it would have an impact on the side after making its fourth straight final in the competition.

"We might be short of one or two players for the trip,” he said.

"I reckon though we will still do well with the squad that we pick.”

The Waves will face the Jets at 6pm today at Hervey Bay.
