Stingrays coach Brett Wallin says he isn't concerned with taking top spot in the NSW NPL Women’s 1.

Illawarra, currently third, are locked in a desperate four-way battle for the ladder-lead, but Wallin’s maintains it isn’t his team’s focus heading into Sunday’s blockbuster against fourth-placed Football NSW Institute at JJ Kelly Park.

“As long as we stay at the point end, I’m not worried with top position,” he said.

“Our aim is to get in the top-four and if we keep going how we are, that should take care of itself.”

Illawarra lost their first two matches of the campaign, but have since taken 19 points from a possible 24 to rocket back into title contention.

“We are coming together nicely and are about where we need to be,” Wallin said.

“We still haven’t put together a complete 90 minutes but are getting closer. Hopefully we can do that this weekend.”

The Institute beat Illawarra 3-2 in round two.
