ST Augustine’s coach Nick Tomaino has labelled this Saturday’s away tussle versus Manly Vale as ‘season defining.’
Saints (26 points) need to win to stay inside the top four, with Vale just one point adrift back in fifth spot with three rounds remaining.
“It will be a battle, playing at their place (David Thomas Reserve) is never easy,” Tomaino said.
“I am sure (Manly Vale coach) Bob Catlin will have a few things planned for us.
“We beat them at home and in the MWFA FA Cup, so I am sure they will be out for revenge.”
