LOSING 5-0 to Brookvale last weekend could work in Narrabeen’s favour ahead of their top of the table game with Pittwater RSL FC this Saturday at Kitchener.
Pitts also tasted defeat, dusted 2-0 on the road versus Mosman.
Narrabeen skipper Mark Femia expects his team to respond at Mona Vale.
“We had a few players out last weekend, but credit to Brookie, they played great football,” he said.
“Games against Pittwater are always great to be a part of, and this weekend will be no different.”
Narrabeen will be without classy defender Josh Lawson, who was sent off against the Blues.
Key striker Justin Hayward is also under an injury cloud.
