Preview: State League v Moreland

Where and when: Eric Raven Reserve, Saturday May 23, 2:30pm AEST
Last time: Camberwell 17 def Moreland 8

FORM:
Camberwell: LLLLL
Moreland: LLLLL

SUMMARY:
Camberwell are on track to notch their first win of the season this week against Moreland.

Looking at the lead up games, Camberwell have played 4 of the top 5 sides and gone close to winning two games. Whereas Moreland have played 3 of the top 5 sides and have been clearly beaten in all matches.

Moreland have also struggled to score, with an average of just over 5 goals per game. Camberwell have averaged 8, with a high of 11 against Footscray. For goals against, Camberwell have conceded 8 fewer. Adding to that the quality of opposition and the stats do speak for themselves.

This game looks set to be a hard fought contest. But Camberwell, with a much stronger defensive unit and more quality options up front, are clear favourites.

KEY MATCHUPS:
Charon v A Cameron: Cameron has scored half of Moreland's goals this season. Cutting his avenue to goal will be crucial.

PLAYER TO WATCH:
Tom Churchward: Another of the U18 squad making a name for himself. A ball magnet in contests and provides great run out of defence. With a lot of contested ball expected this week, he could be in for a day out.
