Doon Villa to go back to the drawing board

DOON Villa will be forced back to basics ahead of their return to Villa Park.

The Magpies fell 1-0 to Bargara at Maryborough's Federation Park Field.

It's not a world-ending scoreline by any stretch, but there was enough in Villa's unsuccessful comeback to leave coach Lachlan Kenny searching for answers.

Kenny cited his side's lack of teamwork and shape as they tried to surmount a challenge against Wide Bay League's newest club.

"We're lacking a bit of teamwork so we need to get back on the training paddock,” Kenny said.

"We were mixing up our shape. We've got a few players playing in similar positions so I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board.”

For Bargara, it is their first win since they entered the competition.

While he congratulated the visitors' efforts, Kenny declared Doon Villa would reverse the result the next time they met.

"Bargara are a side we can beat but they've got a strong side,” he said.

"They're a team we'll be beating come the end of the season.

"We'll be working on formations and movement on and off the ball and getting used to each other.”

Doon Villa will host United Warriors at Villa Park this Satuday.
