The only problem? Confederates play Orange Ex-Services.
Both sides play their home games at the Orange Hockey Complex and Burrell knows Ex-Services, one of the form sides in this season’s women’s PLH competition, will be up for the challenge.
“We seem to play a bit better at home than we have been away,” Burrell said.
“I think the familiarity of our home turf helps us but Ex-services are in exactly the same boat.”
The round 11 fixture has been brought forward due to Orange hosting the 2012 Hockey NSW under 15s girls’ field state championship this weekend.
Tonight’s clash will be the second time Servies and Feds have met in 2012.
In the first game back in round five, the lowly ranked Confederates pushed its Orange rivals for 70 minutes, eventually going down 1-0.
Although the Wednesday night game had depleted her side’s ranks, Burrell said she was confident the side Feds run out with tonight will be able to test Ex-Services yet again.
“Hopefully we can hold them to a minimum score line, if not push them a little more and go for a draw or even the win,” she said.
Ex-Services senior player Linda Wilson expected Feds to come out fired up after going down 6-0 against Bathurst City last weekend.
But that wouldn’t change the way Ex-Services approach the match, which starts at 6.30pm tonight.
“Just going off what (coach) Rob (a) said the other day, we’re not going to get too far ahead of ourselves. Securing the win is our main concern,” Wilson said.
