THRIVING attacking moves have Warrnambool midfielder Tom Cowling confident his side can topple second-placed Forest on Sunday.

Cowling combined with in-form striker Ryan Bail en route to his seven goal haul last week.

Cowling’s form has been integral to Rangers’ strong season to date, with a number of assists to his name.

If we can pass the ball and keep possession, we should be okay. That style really suits us.

The 18-year-old expected Forest to push Rangers with physicality and fast ball movement.

“Forest are second and we’re fourth, so it’s going to be a good challenge for us,” Cowling said.

“If we can pass the ball and keep possession, we should be okay. That style really suits us.

“When we pass the ball quickly and move it, we’re one of the best teams out there.

“We know we can beat any team.”

Cowling said Rangers’ midfield was linking well to their attacking end.

“Ryan has had an immediate impact since he’s been back from injury,” he said.

“He’s very clinical and he’s making the right runs. We’re able to find him and he’s putting them away at the moment.”

Warrnambool hosts Forest at Jones Oval on Sunday.
