Rams hope for Workers' game

BYRON BAY can give its minor premiership hopes a massive boost by moving five points clear on top of the ladder in Far North Coast premier league soccer tonight when the Rams host Lismore Workers at 8pm.

Despite the absence of regulars Jed Wright and John Bradbury, the Bay will be hot favourites to beat an out of form Workers side that has conceded 10 goals and scored none in its last two games. Central defenders Ian Lennie and Bruce Morhaus are both back to boost the depleted line-up that still managed a comfortable 4-1 win over Bangalow on Saturday, along with midfielder Tom Ruhl.

Workers have Cory Loft returning to bring them to full strength and still have a chance to steal fifth place from Ballina, with coach their Paul Ianna calling on his players to lift after two poor performances.

“I think the guys went into mid-season cruise mode but we can't afford that against a side like Byron,” Ianna said.

“What we need is an attitude adjustment, there's still plenty to play for.”
