Brookvale are hoping to put a nightmare run of results behind them when they take on competition frontrunners Mosman at Middle Head Oval on Sunday.
The match shapes as a top versus bottom contest as a disappointing last-gasp defeat last week saw Brookvale overtaken by Beacon Hill for the first time this season.
Mosman on the other hand also dropped points in a 1-1 draw with Seaforth, however Manly Vale’s stalemate with Beacon meant that they maintain their two point lead at the summit with three matches to play.
After a bright start to the campaign, Brookvale have now gone nine matches without a win.
Last month Mosman came away with a 2-0 win at Grahams and Kirra Bullman is anticipating another challenging afternoon this weekend.
“Last time Mosman were physical, pretty strong on the ball and have players with plenty of experience,” she said,
“We were pretty new to playing together when we first played them so I think this time should be a bit better, but they’re a great team and top of the competition for a reason.
“I think us knowing how they play a bit more means we should do a lot better – we just need to get a bit more physical and smart with how we play.”
Despite Michael Cimino’s youthful outfit struggling for results in recent weeks, Bullman feels they are building some valuable experience as a squad.
“At the start of the season we were really determined to make an impact but we’re probably the youngest in the whole competition at the moment,” she explained.
“With only two players from last season staying I think we’ve done well to create a nice vibe for everyone.
“Hopefully with more experience we’ll start seeing results this season and next season.”
