CHARLIE Bradshaw was a teenager finding his way at senior level the last time Camperdown beat Warrnambool.
Now, some five years later, he and Eddie Lucas are the only remaining faces from the last Magpies’ side to beat the Blues picked to play at Reid Oval on Saturday.
Camperdown last sang the song against Warrnambool in 2012 – a year the Blues went on to win the Hampden league flag. The Magpies have since endured eight straight losses to the Blues.
“It’s such a different list. It (the losing streak) hasn’t come up in the boys’ minds,” Bradshaw said.
The Melbourne-based university student, who is in the final year of a chiropractics degree, said Camperdown was keeping its goals simple.
“We have a few things we have to tick off like key indicators and I daresay that will be our main focus this week as well,” Bradshaw said.
“We were a bit too defensive (in the early rounds) but now we’ve got a bit of balance.”
Camperdown is chasing its fourth win from nine games, while Warrnambool is aiming to make it three victories.
