Gold confident leading into semi-final after washout

THE Gympie Gold's fixture on the weekend was washed out but the team is confident leading into this Saturday's semi-final against Caloundra.

The Gympie Gold Offroad XI skipper Troy Ashton said all fixtures were cancelled on the weekend due to the rain.

"With no fixtures getting on, the ladder stays the same so it looks like we will be up against Caloundra this weekend," Ashton said.

"They are a solid team and have strong players but I'm confident we can continue our good form."

The Gold will train twice this week in anticipation for the semi-final, which is set to be played at home.

With One Mile Ovals still unusable due to the floods, the team will either train at Albert Park or the Gympie Showgrounds.

Ashton said if this weekend's fixture was washed out however, the team would benefit from the outcome.

"If the rain washes this weekend's game out, it means we go straight into the final so we are not bothered," he said.

"In saying that we will prepare for this weekend's game like it's our last."

In what has been an almost perfect season for the Gold, they are looking to charge into the season's last fixtures and secure the grandfinal win.
