Knights keen for support in finals quest

WOMEN'S FOOTBALL: The Ipswich Knights Capital 1 side is in a confident mood preparing to tackle fourth place Caboolture on Sunday at Eric Evans Reserve.

The Knights are coming off a comprehensive 5-1 win over rivals Moggill United on Saturday night as they welcomed back a host of players from injuries and other commitments.

Knights midfielder Shani Wilton bagged a hat-trick while experienced cam- paigner Belinda Scott was outstanding playing up front.

Last time the Knights took on Caboolture was away in windy conditions. With only 11 players the Knights came away with a hard earned point after being down 3-0 at half time.

With a full squad back, the Knights are confident of another win to keep their finals hopes alive.

The Knights are only four points behind Moggill who sit second after Ipswich's win over them.

"We seem to have found some momentum in the last few weeks, which is awesome,'' co-coach Brayden Hoffman said.

"The team spirit is up and I'm confident we can keep this form up. If we can, we will beat anyone on our day without a doubt.

"The girls want a big crowd down to the game this weekend so hopefully with the men's team not playing they can get down and support us.''
