Pre-game pep-up talk

THE GYMPIE Cats can pull it together for today's home game against Maroochydore, Cats president Glen Warren says.

Warren said he would be talking to the boys ahead of the match, the first at home for the club this season, as training this week had been "ordinary".

The worst part is that last week the Cats only narrowly missed out on a win against Northshore.

With only 19 players on the day the Cats did well to lose by only three goals.

"They're getting there," Warren said of his team.

"Training was ordinary this week. We will be having a team meeting at 12.30 at the clubhouse on Saturday."

Coupled with the fact the Cats beat Maroochydore by one point in a friendly match at the beginning of the year, the chances of them winning their first game is boosted.

"Hopefully it will bring a bit of confidence." So far the Cats have racked up three losses this season.

"We have a fairly young side.

"Once they learn to play together as a team and gel a little bit they'll be fine."

Players to keep your eye on this year are former under 16s youngsters Jake Mogford and Hayden Rogers.

Warren said the midfielder and backline were playing "really well".
