FOURTH-PLACED Warrnambool won’t shy away from its usual brand of attacking soccer as it plots the downfall of a genuine premiership threat.

Cameron Pyke’s men are set to lock horns with second-placed Forest at Jones Oval on Sunday in a fixture which could make or break their finals hopes.

Victory would all but certify Rangers’ status as a top-four side just two games out from the Ballarat and District Soccer Association finals.

“We had a chat at training about what the rest of the season holds for us,” Pyke said. “If we come out and put three wins on the board, we’ll play finals. Our destiny is in our own hands.”

Pyke said his side was wary of Forest’s defensive press.

“If we were inclined to sit back and defend, I don’t think it’d work,” he said.

“We have to attack and put goals in the back of the net. 

“They say defence wins titles but we’re hoping our mids and attackers can pull their weight too.”
