Michael O’Connell says the Inter Beaver have a point to prove in tomorrow’s derby against the Humber Colts.
Speaking to HU17.net ahead of tomorrow’s big match O’Connell told HU17.net;
“Make no mistake here we have a point to prove after losing to them last time. All the lads were gutted to be beaten in the derby and they cannot wait to try put it right.”
O’Connell will be hoping Sunday will see his side put an end to their current losing streak. The gaffer has been highly critical of his side in recent weeks and is looking to his big names to deliver.
“All the big guns will be out there, Luke Thompson, Andrew Stott and Adam Foster will all be available and Alex Stark has been passed fit for what is a must win game.”
Colts assistant manager Craig Fawcett is already playing mind games trying to rattle the Inter team. His side have switched the fixture to Longcroft after their pitch was deemed unplayable but has left it to the 11th hour to inform Inter.
Fawcett however knows his side will need every advantage they can get as they go into the game as the underdogs. He said;
“Inter will be out for revenge after we beat them last time, we all know that. For sure we are the underdogs, again that is obvious.”
“As we have had to move the game we have given up home advantage, no likes to come over to our side of the tracks, Burden Road is real leveller is old school football, but we had to move it to make sure game is played.”
“Each and every one of our side will be up for it, it would be great for the Colt’s to do the double over Inter.”
“We know they will have all the superstars back, so it will be hard. These are always strongly contested games and usually played in the right spirit, apart from the odd occasion.”
With the match being moved Fawcett is unsure if the home support will make the effort to get to the game saying it’s a long way from Shanghai.
Stew Scott who made over 200 appearances for Inter and is the all time leading scorer can only see one outcome, the former Inter legend said;
“I can see this game been a standard scrappy Derby, but I know Inter Beaver will come out on top. Both teams will be well up for it but I think a Inter win is inevitable.”
