DENILIQUIN Rovers coach Luke Moodie has implored his team not to fall back into bad habits when it searches for back-to-back wins on Saturday.

The Roos finally broke through for their first win of the season with a 33-point triumph over Picola United at the weekend.

Rovers travel to meet Mathoura, which has won just two games.

With consecutive wins there for the taking, Moodie said it was vital his team kept up its effort.

“For us, it’s all about backing up,” Moodie said.

“This season has just been about focusing on what we can control with our key performance indicators.

“Most weeks this year we’ve been good in an area, but not so good in another.

“On Saturday, we were very good in a lot of categories.

“We need to do that again and not go back to old ways.”

In a major boost for the Roos, they are likely to be stronger on paper this week.

Moodie said “four or five” players could come back into the team, with key defender Matt Horn and outside chance of returning from an extended absence.

Bryce Burgess and Brayden Jones, who were unavailable last week, are likely to return.

Youngster Joseph Hay is another who could make his return.
