BEING more creative in attack is the message from Josh Fluss despite Melrose thrashing St Pats 5-0 last week.

Tomorrow the Lavington club is at home to a very young Albury City and the coach wants more from his attackers.

“We need to be better in the front third,” Fluss said.

“Defensively we were pretty sound and kept possession in the middle of the park.

“But the front third we weren’t creative enough, the better teams in the competition will make you pay if you can’t create chances.”

Albury City’s Michael Pertzel said they were going into the game with some confidence despite being beaten 5-0 by Twin City last weekend.

“Give Twin City their due they had one well-worked goal but other than that it was probably the result of our mistakes that they capitalised on,” he said.

“We have a lot of young boys in the squad the oldest two are 20 and 24.”
