Shute Shield: Sudden death will drive Gordon to great heights against Easts

By MARK CASHMAN

Gordon coach Darren Coleman is hoping that the nature of sudden death footy will bring the best out in the minor premiers as they prepare to take on Eastern Suburbs on Saturday.

On the line is a spot in the Shute Shield premiership decider at Leichhardt Oval on October 31 and the Highlanders boss believes the clunky nature of the 15-14 win over Randwick last weekend was an aberration.

Coleman says that his side didn’t become a bad footy side in the space of a week and he is looking forward to a reaction.

“Last week’s game was a strange one,” Coleman said.
