Belief and confidence crucial for Tigers

Kyneton coach Mark Adamson.WHILE the sight of their side sitting in the Bendigo Football League top five would be bringing a smile to long-suffering Kyneton supporters, Tigers coach Mark Adamson continues to drill into his players the importance of early-season belief and confidence.

For the first time since round one, 2010, Kyneton is in the top five after opening its season with a 60-point belting of arch-rival Gisborne last Friday.

“The biggest thing for me is it’s not about where we sit at the moment, but it’s important that with an up and coming side you win important games early,” Adamson said on Thursday.

“That then gives you the opportunity to possibly consolidate a (top five) spot, and then you can start the ‘we’re in, we don’t want to drop out’ line once we get a bit further into the season.

“We’re all about building confidence and belief… belief is the biggest thing in footy.

“As a coach you can say as much as you want, but the key to the belief is the players being able to deliver as a group.”

The Tigers are at home this Saturday to last year’s runners-up Sandhurst – a club Kyneton hasn’t beaten since 2008.

Meanwhile, at Bendigo Mazda Oval, Kangaroo Flat will be striving to notch its first win of the season on Saturday night when it takes on Castlemaine from 5.30pm.

The Magpies will be chasing a 2-0 start to the season after beating Maryborough by 79 points last week.

“Castlemaine had a great win last week and challenged us twice last season. We will need to be at our best to beat them,” Roos coach Jason Stevens said.
