REDAN playing coach Brendan Peace says his team knows a few things about East Point to start semi-final preparations this week.Consistency has been the key theme in both camps ahead of Saturday's match.Redan and East Point have played twice this season in two very different clashes, leaving RegionalOne Ballarat Football League fans unsure of what to expect in this showdown.Redan playing coach Brendan Peace said it helped to expect a heavy deck, just like when they last met in mid-July.Only this time, East Point will have captain Dan Jordan and key midfielder Chris Banwell back in the fold."We need to make sure a defensive mindset is there from the word go, and start again (tonight) on the training track to make sure players are prepared, and give them the structures in play with that defensive mindset," Peace said yesterday."We need to start every contest with a winner or at least breaking even."The Linlec Electrical Lions have won their past 11 outings, which is exactly how the Red Lion Kangaroos entered round 12 against Redan.Peace said his players drew a lot of confidence from playing good football at the right end of the year while still taking it one game at a time.That round 12 clash ended the Roos' winning streak and taught them a harsh lesson in how to play wet-weather football.The Roos looked a completely different outfit when they faced Ballarat in the mud and rain for last week's elimination final.East Point captain Dan Jordan said the win in the wet was a big confidence boost for the playing group."There were little question marks over whether we could play wet-weather footy," Jordan said."No doubt the Redan midfield is quality, and in the heavy conditions we wanted to make a point to be first to the ball, being fairly physical and assert aggression on the ball."Jordan started in an onball role against Ballarat to add muscle, because key Roos midfielder Tom Blackford was out.The star forward expected to return to his traditional spot in front of goals, especially with Blackford "chomping at the bit" to return, but he said it would all depend on the coaches and match conditions.Jordan said the Roos were not fazed by knowing Redan was entering the final as favourite, unbeaten the past three months, because his team would stick exactly to what it knew."Redan are a pretty quality outfit. They've been there before and know what it's all about," Jordan said."I don't think it matters whether a team's won 11 games in a row or is coming off a loss."Preparations for each game are exactly the same."
