UNDER fire Pittwater RSL FC are bracing themselves for a torrid 90 minutes when they travel to David Thomas Reserve to play Manly Vale this Saturday.
Pitts know a defeat will see them drop out of the top four, a prospect which worries experienced defender Peter Stegic.
“Manly Vale are a quality side, Tyson (Masters) has been banging in the goals, their midfield are creative and their defence is organised,” he said.
“DT (David Thomas) is always tough to play at, it is compact compared to other pitches.
“They are also one point behind us, so there is plenty to play for.”
