TWIN City co-coach Cayne Wilhelm says veteran Tom Komadina could be the answer to the club’s forward dilemma.
Wanderers have struggled to find a regular marksman since Zac Walker and Liam Carey left the club but Komadina showed last week he could be the ideal replacement after scoring four goals in the 5-0 win away to St Patrick’s.
Midfielder Wilhelm, who is sharing the coaching duties with defender Jamie Block this season, said he hoped former Diamonds striker Komadina could continue his impressive start to the season in tomorrow’s blockbuster round 2 clash against Myrtleford at Savoy Park.
“He was at Diamonds and came to us and we were happy to have him,” Wilhelm said of Komadina, who was in 2011 named in Diamonds’ team of the past 37 years.
“He was very good last week.
“He’s not the quickest bloke but he’s smart what he does.
“We’ve lacked someone like that since Walker and Liam left us.
“It’s been good to have someone who can hold it up front.”
Komadina started pre-season with Diamonds but his move to Kelly Park looks to already have paid off.
Twin City and Myrtle- ford will both enter the clash with two forwards in form, with Myrtleford’s English recruit Dan Summers booting four in the club’s 7-0 home win against Albury City.
Fellow English recruit Louis Clark also found the back of the net in a sign the Savoys will have an intimidating forward arsenal in 2013.
The Wanderers and Savoys have developed a strong rivalry in the past five years and if last year’s results are anything to go by another hard-fought game is expected.
Twin City won 3-1 at home in round 6, while the Savoys held on for a 1-1 draw at Myrtleford in round 17, with AWFA Star Player Jason Gilbert equalising for a fast-finishing Twin City with 11 minutes remaining.
“It will be very interesting this weekend,” Wilhelm said.
“I reckon it will be a good game. I’ve heard their new guys are very good.”
The AWFA has a bye over Easter.
