The Lions go into this game with a depleted squad with 4 players missing John Roe, Owen Mcdevitt-Kyle, Josh Burbidge and Jake Hoffman
Phoenix finished a creditable mid table in the Central Premier League last season and are now moving into the MJPL, so Sundays game should be a tough one against what promises to be a very strong well organised side.
These pre season games are all about fitness, team shape and discipline. It also gives us a chance to play with a few ideas and formations before the season starts so we have a plan B that the lads are comfortable with if plan A isnt working come the start of the season. It will be a good run out if nothing else for the boys involved after a couple of weeks break.
