East Point is all about the future rather than past going into the Balarat Football League preliminary final at the City Oval on Saturday.
Coach Jake Bridges believes there are too many variables from their previous two meetings with Darley to be basing conclusions on.
He said the Devils were going through a difficult time on and off the field when the Roos won their mid-season clash and then in Darley’s win in the last home and away game East Point was missing some key players who were now back.
“I’m not reading too much into them.”
Bridges said it was more about the here and now as what each side had produced in the finals.
He said East Point had been down on its best and some “tweaks” had been made which would hopefully see this turn around.
East Point and Darley each have a common form thread through North Ballarat City.
The Roos came from 42 points down in the third term to win by one point in the qualifying final and Darley held out a charging North to win the first semi-final by two points.
