Pride of the Lions

SCORING 17 goals from its last three games, Coffs United has the rest of the NCF Men's Premier League watching with intent.

As expected the Lions have quickly accounted for their eight-point deduction and are on a mission to return to the top.

NCF technical director Gary McGinnis is not surprised by the Lions' form and expects more of the same from the reigning premiers when they play Boambee tomorrow.

"Coffs have been emphatic in victory over the past few rounds," McGinnis said.

"Mike Smith is an excellent coach and the way he has his team playing is no shock.

"Other teams will be now looking over their shoulder."

A clash between Urunga and Northern Storm at Korora is the big match of the round with both teams desperate to find consistent results.

McGinnis believes this season is sure to throw up plenty of excitement over the remaining rounds.

"It is only early in the season I absolutely expect plenty of twists and turns to come," he said.

"It has been a close fought competition so far."

Other games this round sees Orara Valley host Woolgoolga at Orara Recreation Reserve, Sawtell travel to Polwarth Dr to take on Coffs Tigers and the Clarence Valley derby with Maclean and Westlawn going head to head.

Maclean v Westlawn - 3pm at Barry Watts Oval.

Coffs Tigers v Sawtell - 4pm at Polwarth Dr.
