Ipswich team gets back on target
HAVING his older brother as head coach doesn't phase Lucas Wilson too much.
"He's as hard on me as any of the other boys,'' Lucas said of playing under sibling Danny at the Ipswich Knights this season.
However, regular striker Lucas enjoyed doing his job and being among the goal scorers in the Knights' much-needed latest victory.
The Knights outclassed AC Carina 7-1 in the second round Canale Cup knockout competition game at Bundamba on Thursday night.
"It was nice to get a decent performance out and score a couple of goals,'' Lucas said.
"For us, it was just about getting the result on the board and doing the right thing.''
After some disappointing recent efforts in the Brisbane Premier League competition, coach Danny was keen to get his team's attack firing.
Lucas, 26, said the team achieved that with Jason Pillay leading the way with a double.
"Jason is very dangerous moving forward and getting at them,'' Lucas said. "He's got great speed and great strength over the ball and he's going to continue to create chances for the remainder of the year, which is a real positive for us.''
Lucas scored his goal midway through the first half as the Knights stamped their authority on a team a few levels below them in the Football Brisbane competition.
The school teacher was happy to see Mitch Davis, Emmanuel Peter and Francis Patricio also finding the net.
"Last night was a good opportunity for us to put some attacking movements forward and hopefully that's going to flow over into our next league game,'' he said.
The Knights players have the weekend off, given a chance to freshen up and reflect before resuming their BPL campaign.
