Cannons Putting Poor Start Behind Them

  • Cannons Putting Poor Start Behind Them

Yet to register a win in season 2019 – Oakleigh Cannons coach Chris Taylor says the team has shown many positive signs in the opening three matches.

Oakleigh head into the match away to Kingston City following a disappointing loss at home Dandenong Thunder.

But Taylor believes the results have not reflected the performances so far and the side’s first win is not far away.

“I am confident the first win is coming we go into every game feeling very confident of getting a result,” Taylor said.

“We’ve played six halves of football and been the better team in five of those.

“We’re looking at the positives and overcoming the negatives.

“We know we’ve got plenty of ability here it’s just a matter of lifting confidence and getting the right result.

“We’ve conceded some goals that have been a bit sloppy and we’ve missed chances we should be putting away and football comes down to scoring more than your opposition.”



The last time the two sides met was in July 2018 when the Cannons came away with a 2-0 win at home.

Kingston also head into the game without a win – with their only point coming in a scoreless draw to Port Melbourne Sharks.

“Kingston are very hard at it,” Taylor said.

“They’re a good side, very well drilled and well coached we know they’re going to put up a good fight and show some intensity in front of goal.”

Oakleigh take on Kingston on Monday 11 March at Grange Reserve from 8:30pm.
