A firing attack could be the key for Port Kembla in the Illawarra Premier League grand final against Bulli on Sunday.
The League Championship winners got back in goal-scoring form in their 2-1 win over Tarrawanna on the weekend. Previously, in their 1-0 major semi-final loss to Bulli, they failed to score for the first time in more than four months.
Port striker and skipper Daniel Aliffi was at the forefront of the Zebras' attack with a pair of headed goals and is looking forward to redemption against Bulli this weekend.
"I am happy to be on the score sheet, but I am happier that we got the win and are in a grand final - that is the main thing," Aliffi said.
"We were disappointed with our performance last week so we really want to make sure we have a good game this week."
Port looked stumped in front of goal when they met Bulli earlier in the finals at WIN Stadium, in a performance that left coach Stuart Beedie searching for answers from the attacking third.
But Aliffi's double could be the key to reigniting their confidence in front of goal.
"It is important to have goal-scoring form, but as long as the team plays well and everyone in each position play at their best level, then the goals are going to come," Aliffi said.
"We are dangerous, not just from me or from Nuno [Pires]. In fact, we are dangerous all over the field.
"We are a threat from anywhere."
Port's devastating attack was a feature in their 16-game winning streak in the regular season, with a league best average of more than two goals a game helping them finish top of the pile.
Grand final opponents Bulli were on the wrong end of two regular-season defeats and are wary of the dangers posed by an in-form Port Kembla attack.
"The boys at the back will definitely have to be on the ball to keep them [Aliffi and Nuno] out next week," Bulli coach Ben Smith said.
"Hopefully we can go one better than we did last year."
