THE Bendigo Gold are tonight preparing for a VFL clash at the Queen Elizabeth Oval against Collingwood that can be best described as a battle of David v Goliath.

Tonight’s game pits the minnows of the VFL, the Gold, against the biggest sporting club in the land, the Magpies.

While the Gold are in their first season as a stand-alone club in the VFL and fighting for respect – both from their opposition and the Bendigo community – Collingwood is not only a power of the football world, but a brand that is the Australian equivalent of English soccer’s Manchester United and the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers.

For three quarters against North Ballarat at the QEO last night the Bendigo Gold showed it has the makings of a good VFL team

The inexperienced Gold responded to a thumping loss last round and took it up to its country rivals, one of the competition’s former powerhouses.

Bendigo led halfway through the second quarter and was still right in the contest when it trailed by just 20 points at three-quarter time.

But the physical cost took its toll on the Gold in the final quarter, when it didn’t have any fit players on the bench.

BENDIGO Gold coach Hayden Skipworth slept well on Friday night after his team ticked three key boxes with its 19-point VFL win over the Box Hill Hawks at the Queen Elizabeth Oval.

Firstly, the 17.11 (113) to 14.10 (94) win guaranteed the Gold their place in the finals as they shut the door to any chance the ninth-placed North Ballarat had of climbing into the eight.

And it’s just as well the Gold won , because had they lost, the Roosters would have snatched eighth spot after beating Port Melbourne by one point on Saturday.

Secondly, the Gold returned to form as the victory ended a five-game losing streak that saw them tumble from top-four contenders to their finals hopes hanging by a thread entering the last round.

And finally, Bendigo snapped its QEO hoodoo.
