Door Slams Shut on Knights; Big Opportunity Missed in Loss to Brisbane Force


Byline: DAVID LEMS

LIKE a punter having a bad day at the races, the Ipswich Knights were unable to catch up in yesterday's frustrating game at Bundamba.

With second-placed North Star losing the night before to Slacks Creek, the Knights had a chance to move within a point of the team above them.

However, as the door of opportunity creaked open, it slammed shut just as quickly at Eric Evans Reserve.

The Knights will hold third spot on the congested Division 1 table despite yesterday's disappointing 3-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Brisbane Force.

However, they remain four points behind North Star who have a game in hand.

Knights' unexpected loss to Force also failed to help regional neighbours Ipswich City, who worked hard to beat bottom team Toowoomba 3-0 on Saturday night.

Lacking hunger like the Knights, Western Spirit will be on the rebound for this weekend's local derby after a disappointing 3-0 loss to Pine Rivers United.

Spirit's defeat allowed Beenleigh and Pine Rivers to leapfrog Spirit in the battle for top-six playoff spots.

But while Bulls coach Trent Abel was happy how his stand-in players stood up on Saturday night, Knights mentor Ian Carson put on a brave face after yesterday's match.

C[pounds sterling]We were out-enthused. The intensity wasn't there,C[yen] Carson said, also missing a number of key players.

C[pounds sterling]The effort was there, not the enthusiasm. You can't put your finger on enthusiasm. It's either there on the day or it's not.C[yen]

Although injuries and suspensions had stretched the Knights' depth, Carson was reluctant to make excuses. …
