Following three consecutive losses, Sebastopol Vikings interim coach Dan Hollingworth says he won't allow his side to make excuses despite playing with an undermanned team.
Missing some key players, Sebastopol has been outscored 11-2 across its last three outings.
"There are no excuses," Hollingworth said.
"Our player's know we are capable of much for than this... it shouldn't matter we've been missing a few players."
The Vikings will head on the road for a match-up with rivals Point Cook. While Sebastopol took away a 4-2 victory in the two side's last meeting, Hollingworth says his side needs to focus on capitalising its opportunities to repeat its form from earlier in the season.
"We need to put away our chances, it's as simple as that... we could have won some of our recent games if we just a little more clinical."
Sebastopol will travel to Saltwater Reserve in Point Cook for its game on Saturday afternoon from 3pm.
