WODONGA Raiders star Dean Limbach says the club is in danger of going backwards if it doesn’t win tomorrow’s Wodonga derby against the Bulldogs.

The Raiders have tasted victory just twice this season, with their last win coming against Wodonga on Anzac Day.

Limbach pointed out the club won three games under Ken Stevenson last year, despite claiming the wooden spoon, and said the Raiders needed to lift their game in the remaining rounds.

“Hopefully we can start knocking off a few sides,” Limbach said.

“If you don’t win more games than you did the year before, then you’ve gone backwards, haven’t you?

“We don’t want to be doing that.”

Wodonga is winless after 11 rounds but has made major strides in recent weeks.

Limbach expects a stern test from the Bulldogs.

“It’s a big game for the town,” he said.

“They’ve obviously struggled this year but we’ve had our share of troubles, too, with form and injury.

“We’re really keen to get the points and we have expectations to beat them again.”

Limbach, who has booted 52 goals for the season, kicked 10 against the Bulldogs on Anzac Day.
