There is nothing more to this game than the element of pride that this club possesses. They have demonstrated that it the previous month. Due to their amazing performances, the Magpies now rank thirteenth on the ladder.Over the course of thirty-six rounds, they produced eleven wins and nine losses. They are bound to try and finish the season on a high note and therefore will not pull any punches in the upcoming clash.
