Albury United star striker Alicia Torcaso admits the side’s young players will determine how they fare against the undefeated Albury City on Sunday.

Torcaso believes it’s the responsibility of the more experienced heads to encourage the young group.

“It’s always hard playing the top of the league, a lot of the young girls get intimidated against teams like City and Boomers,” she said.

“They’re all good players, they just need to feel confident in what they’re doing.

“No-one wants to go out and play a game where you’re beating teams by a huge scoreline, City give it to us and hopefully we can make them a bit scared as well.”

City’s Brogan Broadway said last week’s 5-0 victory over St Pats was a substantial effort and hopes the side can control the middle of the park against United.

“This week we’ll have Jill Scott come back in and Molly Goldsworthy is back into the line-up, which has given us a lot more depth,” she said.
