Bay Power's position realised after ATW clash

TODAY'S Aussie Rules match will determine where Bay Power really sits on the competition ladder.

It has been a mixed season for the Bay's blue side.

A positive start which saw the side win its first two games has evaporated with two narrow losses in the past fortnight.

A two-point defeat by the Hervey Bay Bombers and then a 17-point loss to Brothers Bulldogs has taken the steam from the Power side.

Bay Power coach Michael Gay said the side's momentum was slowed by the two losses.

"Last week we had a few players out so we're probably hurting more from the Bombers loss than the Brothers loss," he said.

"We've got a couple of guys coming back in but we do have a few guys away working. Those losses were disappointing but regarding the skill level and player numbers, we're not too bad at the moment."

Today the Bay Power outfit will play Across the Waves in Bundaberg.

"They're a very good running team so we've got to counteract them and be tight in defence," he said.

"Our defence is not too bad - it's our two-way running we need to improve on.

"We're up in Bundaberg so it will be more difficult."

The Hervey Bay Bombers will travel to the Sunshine Coast to take on the Maroochydore Roos.

The first bounce will be at 2pm today.
