GLENROWAN will be desperate to stay in the Ovens and King league’s premiership race when it takes on Whorouly in the semi-finals at Tarrawingee on Saturday.
After sitting in the top two for a large chunk of the home and away season, coach Nigel Robinson is under pressure to avoid a straight-sets departure after last weekend’s narrow loss to Milawa.
Robinson was disappointed rather than shattered with the focus soon turning to cutting out the lapses in concentration that proved telling.
Jordan Bradley started the finals in brilliant fashion for the Tigers while former Melbourne player Nathan Carroll looms as a matchwinner in attack.
Whorouly edged out Bright in a thriller last weekend and will rely on Paul Glanville to run hot in the ruck and up forward to keep its season alive.
Kieren Schulz shapes as another trump card.
In the other semi-final, King Valley meets Moyhu at Milawa on Sunday.
The Roos were also unlucky to lose last weekend and coach Brendan Sessions is unlikely to suffer the same fate this weekend.
Moyhu will look towards Jeremy Wilson to lead the way.
