BALLARAT Red Devils are gearing up for a frantic nine days of soccer after a disrupted start to the National Premier Leagues Victoria season.
The McDonalds Reds, currently sitting pretty at 2-0, will play three matches in nine days after two of the first four rounds were washed out.
The team will face top of the ladder South Melbourne this Thursday before taking on Heidelberg on Easter Monday and Pascoe Vale in round six on Saturday, April 26.
Last weekend’s match against Heidelberg was washed out – as was the round one encounter scheduled against Bentleigh Greens.
Red Devils coach James Robinson says his players are up to the challenges awaiting them.
Ballarat has a quick turnaround before it faces South Melbourne for the second time in its opening home game in round seven on May 3.
