Why football winners should by a Lotto ticket

FOOTBALL: Ipswich City Bulls coach Norbert Duga is waiting for the top six sides to complete all their catch-up games before assessing the true state of the competition.

However, he reckons current Capital League 1 leaders Toowong should buy a Lotto ticket after their lucky win over the Bulls on Saturday night.

Toowong only penetrated the Bulls defence in the dying stages of the game at Sutton Park, securing a 1-0 victory.

That kept Toowong a point clear of Caboolture, who still have three games in hand.

The fifth-placed Bulls have a match to play, being just four points adrift of Toowong.

"It was a bit of a battle,'' Duga said of the latest clash.

"The last two weeks, we've played really, really good.

"We probably created a lot more chances than they did.

"We didn't deserve to lose.

"A bit disappointed but there's still 40 points or whatever to play for this year and we'll soldier on.''

With the Bulls preparing to play their next FFA Cup match on Tuesday night, Duga was encouraged by his team's commitment, having seven players out across both grades.

The Bulls Reserves also earlier toiled hard, losing their first match of the season 2-1.

Duga was planning to assess some niggling injury concerns before finalising his team to play Football Queensland Premier League opponents Peninsula Power at Sutton Park.

The Bulls have already won three games in the national knockout series.

"We will give them a run,'' the Bulls coach said.

Western Spirit lost Saturday night's CL1 game 4-0 to Oxley at Kippen Park.
