Busy coach puts Pride on the line in top duel

EVEN though he has a foot in the Western Pride and Brisbane Roar camps for tomorrow's match, Kasey Wehrman said his priority was with his National Premier League side.

"First and foremost on Wednesday, I'll have a Western Pride hat on," the regional club's senior team coach said.

"I'm looking to win the game as usual and making sure the boys put their best foot forward and we play some attacking football.

"I'm lucky. I get a lot of information both ways (Pride and Roar)."

Wehrman was recently appointed Roar youth assistant coach for the upcoming national season.

Pride have trained in recent days after completing their NPL season.

Pride also beat state conference premiers Olympic 1-0 in a practice match last Friday.

Wehrman said playing Roar was a fantastic opportunity for the Pride team, especially those who hadn't tackled the A-League heavyweights in past Ipswich Invitational games.

"With all the hard work they've done through the season - and they surprised a lot of people - they deserve to have a run against the best team in the state," Wehrman said.

"It's a big honour for them and we'll be trying to win."

Will Jordan is expected to captain the Western Pride team in tomorrow's 3pm match at the Toowoomba Grammar School.
