DEE Why are wary of an improving Mosman ahead of Saturday night’s match of the round at Cromer Park.
Following a couple of impressive wins against Seaforth and Curl Curl, the Swans came crashing back to reality last start, beaten 2-1 by Wakehurst.
“It was a good lesson for us, we were woeful at times,” striker Matt Cooper said.
“Maybe it was all the (FFA) Cup games taking its toll, I’m not sure, but we were very lethargic.
“Mosman won’t be any easier, they work hard as a unit right up until the final whistle.
“We need to be miles better than we were against Wakehurst or it will be a long night.”
The Whales have hit the ground running in 2019.
Losing a seven-goal thriller versus Brookvale in their season opener was followed up by an encouraging 2-1 defeat at the hands of Seaforth before winning at home 1-0 against Curl Curl last Saturday afternoon.
Elewhere this round, Wakehurst tackle St Augustine’s at Narrabeen Sports High, Seaforth entertain Pittwater RSL FC, Curly host Narrabeen at Abbott Rd and Brookvale entertain CC Strikers.
