LAHARUM will travel to face the Swifts on Saturday.

Swifts return to the ground for the round two contest after a strong victory against Taylors Lake outfit in the opening week. 

The Mountain Men won in similar style and will be eager to go 2-0. 

The Mountain Men had 51 scoring shots in the round one match against Pimpinio to finish with 21.30 (156), while the Baggies finished with 25.17 (167) in its opening match.

Baggies coach Scott Carey said his side was excited to get back into football after the Easter break. 

“Our focus over the past few weeks was moving the ball out of the contest, rather than just kicking it in tight and just hoping,” he said.

"I would like to think it will be a pretty solid hit-out against Laharum, but we do not have much of a form guide in the season so far.”

Carey said the team would need to be switched on right across the ground.

“Our midfield pressure has to be at a premium to allow our backs to do their job,” he said.
