COBURG has its sights set on a strong finish to the Victorian Football League season as it looks to create a springboard into its second pre-season as a stand-alone side under coach Peter German.
The Lions still have just three wins to their name but see the last month of the season as a prime opportunity to add to their tally of victories.
A home match against North Ballarat kicks off the run home this Sunday before the Lions round out the season with clashes against Sandringham, Frankston and Casey.
“The last four games are all winnable,” Coburg general manager Craig Lees said.
“We’ve got four opportunities to play sides that won’t play in the finals and we could potentially finish the year off well. People are actually starting to look at Coburg now and see how they’re going and take notice of their results. Even our sponsors are really thrilled at how competitive we’ve been. But what we’ve got to do in the off-season is maintain the momentum that we’ve built but look to build on that next year.”
