Following last Saturday’s forgettable 5-1 away loss against Swan United, the South West Phoenix have two massive assignments in front of them.

Aside from facing Gosnells City in Perth on Wednesday (last night), the Phoenix host Canning City in a relegation “eight-pointer” on Saturday afternoon at Onside Sports Stadium.

Phoenix boss Nick Carter is keen for his men to dust themselves down and return to the recent form which garnered positive results against league high-flyers Kingsley Westside FC and Carramar Shamrock Rovers.

“Regardless of the referee’s decisions not going our way, we still have to defend our goal,” Carter said.

“And they managed to score five against us. So fair play to them (Swan United) but we need to do better. It is essential we do the right things on and off the pitch and continue to pick up points.
