WANGARATTA City may have suffered a demoralising 5-0 defeat at the hands of Twin City Wanderers, but co-coach Mario Antonello is remaining upbeat about the Red Devils’ finals prospects.
Strong defence from the Devils saw competition leading TCW post a 2-0 score line at halftime at Kelly Park on Sunday but the visiting team was unable to match the Wanderers in the second half.
Antonello said the Wanderers were “head and shoulders” above the competition.
“They’re on the top of the ladder and they’re head and shoulders better than anyone else we’ve played this season,” Antonello said.
“If they play like that every week, they won’t drop a game.
“They’re much better than the majority of teams in the competition – they belted St Pats by 13.”
