Forrie beat Armadale in Night Series Opener

Forrestfield United moved into the Quarter Finals of the NPL-WA Night Series after a 2-1 win against Armadale at Dalmatinac Park on Thursday evening.

Ben Rogers opened the scoring on 54 minutes, before Michael Rizidis levelled for The Reds on the hour. But a stunning strike from Callum Dobbs won it eight minutes later.

Head Coach Rod Banjac said it was a pleasing performance but they still have things to work on.

“It was good to win the game, but we are not getting carried away we are still in pre-season, and it showed at times,” Banjac said.

“But the Forrie spirt was on full show last night with the players matching a good Armadale side and a stunning strike from Callum and a great team goal finished off by Ben gave us the win.”

Banjac said they will hit the track on Monday looking to improve certain aspects of their game.

“You know me, the Coaches and I saw a few things we need to work on and it will be to training on Tuesday as we prepare for the Quarter Finals,” he said.

“It was pleasing to see some of the younger players get the opportunity last night and they were good and gives us depth for the NPL.

The Coach was pleased the ‘Forrie Army’ were in full voice at the game.

“Our supporters are the best and it was fantastic to see a large number there last night and the players responded,” he said.

“We are still building for the new season, and are enjoying pitting our wits against the best teams in the league, but like I said these games are good but we are fully focused for February 23 when we meet Floreat Athena in our first ever NPL-WA game.”

The draw for the Quarter Finals will be made next week
