Unbeaten leaders provide test

BUOYED by an injection of confidence, Western Spirit faces one of its toughest tests in tonight's Capital League 1 clash against Mitchelton.

Spirit heads to Teralba Park for the 6pm main game against the unbeaten competition leaders.

Coach Darren Hillier noticed a renewed purpose at training this week after last weekend's much-needed 2-0 win over Southside Eagles.

"Everybody was switched on," he said, encouraged by Spirit's first win in a disrupted season.

Hillier was also pleased to see new captain Dan Liddy playing an active role.

"It was all very positive," the coach said.

Hillier knows how dangerous Mitchelton can be. But he's hoping the stronger club situation inspires Spirit to continue their recent improvement.

"I'm sticking to the same formation and the same side that got the win," he said.

Having powerful striker Matt Taylor gaining more movement after a groin injury is another encouraging sign.
