Twenty20 finals focus for Swifts

TWENTY20 has become the main focus of Swifts for the remainder of the season.

The third-placed Swifts have a game in hand on Northsiders and Alberton, the only teams ahead of them on the Ipswich T20 ladder.

They will face Central Districts at Mark Marsh Oval tonight.

Swifts captain Jarred Lacey said the team was looking to be in the running during the finals.

"(Twenty20 is) our main focus now until the end of the year," he said. "I wouldn't mind getting a trophy from it to be honest. A win against Centrals will really put us a long way towards that."

Lacey said his team was well positioned for the competition with a strong all-round team.

We're looking pretty good at the moment, we've got a pretty strong team. I don't really look to any one guy to carry the team for us ... we've got a strong 11 out that can all do the job.

Tonight's game is Swifts' second last Twenty20 round game, with their final game not until February 18, the last game of the regular season.

"We play now and then not until late February, so it's a bit hard to get into a rhythm," Lacey said. "The scheduling isn't the best, personally I'd like to have it a bit tighter, but that's just how these things go."

Central Districts, who have three games remaining, will also be looking to secure a position near the top of the table. They sit fifth, one point behind Swifts, but have a difficult run to the finals.
