PORT Saints coach John Goodman admits he doesn’t know what to expect on Wednesday night when Saints clash with Taree.

It will be the first time the two sides have met this season as they play their rescheduled fixture from earlier in the year which was washed out.

On paper Taree have the edge following a 2-0 pre-season FFA Cup win.

“They’re the sort of team who have been really hot or really cold this year,” Goodman said.

Goodman will have the benefit of a full-strength side at his disposal except for the unavailability of captain Anthony Jamieson.

Saints will look for a positive result as they aim to keep the pressure on Macleay Valley at the top.

But if they finish the regular season in second, the coach didn’t see that as a disadvantage.

“If you finish second you don’t have the week off and you get the home game.”

Wednesday night’s match kicks off at 8pm at Findlay Park with reserve grade at 6pm.
