IT’S crunch time when one plays two in AWFA’s senior soccer competition tomorrow.

Ladder leaders Twin City are at home to the only side that has been able to lower their colours all year — Boomers.

Wanderers coach David Afonso said his squad was eager for revenge, eager to establish a six-point buffer at the top of the table.

“We’ll do everything we can to get that six-point buffer,” he said.

“We have a tough run coming up and know you can’t bank too many points too early. Boomers are well-organised and disciplined we created chances last time it just wasn’t our day.”

Boomers coach and playmaker Andrew Grove said they would take a team approach to reigning in Twin City’s attacking options.

“You can’t tag City, they have too many good players, it is more of a structured approach — as a team we need to work as a unit,” he said.

“This isn’t a grand final but it is definitely going to help the team who wins as far as the league title is concerned. We need to be better in front of goals — all year we have played well in the middle of the park and then wasted the opportunity in front of goal.”
