CQFC Energy looks to lock in one last win after Sunday's win

WHEN Jordan Millar steps out on to the field at Rugby Park this weekend, he will have one thing on his mind - locking in one last win.

Having found fantastic form in the last few rounds of the Queensland National Premier League season, Central Queensland Energy is hoping for continued strength when it tackles Palm Beach Sharks on home turf this weekend.

After accounting for Queensland Academy of Sport 3-0 yesterday afternoon, CQFC Energy player Millar's confidence was bolstered heading into his final game of the season.

"It felt really good to get the win, the heat played a huge part in the game with a 1pm kick-off, it was pretty hot out there," Millar said.

"Hopefully, we can finish off with three home wins but it's definitely going to be tough, last time we played Palm Beach we lost 5-4 so we can certainly score against them," he said.

With 10 minutes left on the clock and the score tied at nil-all in CQFC's clash with QAS, the Energy side proved their class by scoring three consecutive goals.

"The last 10 minutes of the game, to score three goals came in a bit of a flurry and the good thing was despite the heat, we played until the end," Millar said.

CQFC's three goals came from Kevin Fraser, Brayden Crowley and Millar.

Millar praised fellow Energy players Jarrod Lancaster and Warrick Jansen for their efforts on the field as well as Andrew Poysner.

"Both of our wide players, Jarrod Lancaster and Warrick Jansen, had really good games as well as Andrew Poysner, our goalkeeper," he said.

"Andrew had a few crucial saves for us in the first 10 minutes of the game."

Looking ahead to the 2014 NPL season, Millar said he hoped the Energy would keep a good core group of players.

"A lot of the players this year were young and after a year together, the boys will take some experience into next season," he said.

Energy coach Ray Wood mirrored Millar's comments on the 2014 season and said the side's current good form would result in confidence next year.

"The boys will take a lot of belief into next year's pre-season," Wood said.

"Our fitness levels are rising and it's a good sign of things to come.

"I think we will go well in our last game of season and hopefully make it three out of three to finish off the year," he said.
