Coach confident Panthers learn from mistakes

SAWTELL co-coach Eddie Harrison is confident his team will be able to bounce back when they take on Nambucca Heads at Rex Hardaker oval tomorrow.

The Panthers paid the price for a sluggish start last week with Harrison adamant his players had learnt their lesson.

"We were very scrappy early on and Coffs took advantage," Harrison said.

"You can't concede 24 points and expect to win a match and hopefully we have been able to address that this week at training."

Standing in the way of a Panthers win will be an in-form Roosters team fresh from a comprehensive win against reigning premiers Macleay Valley.

"Nambucca Heads are a team which demand plenty of respect," Harrison said.

"I have always felt we have a team strong enough to beat any other side in the competition on our day.

"If we bring our best I have no doubt we can collect the two points."

A mixed start to the season has the Panthers searching for consistency.

"With only two wins from four starts the pressure is mounting on us to get our act together.

"The boys will be keen to turn the season around with a win on Sunday."
