Olympic aim to continue their winning start to the 2022 NPL Queensland season when they host Logan Lightning at Goodwin Park on Saturday evening (5pm KO).
Victories over Brisbane City, Young Roar and Moreton Bay leave Olympic with maximum points from their opening three games sitting level at the top of the league alongside Gold Coast Knights who are the only other side to have collected maximum points so far.
Olympic’s start continued on Tuesday night with a 6-0 Australia Cup win over Albany Creek Excelsior to book a place in Preliminary Round 5 where they’ll face Redcliffe Dolphins.
Saturday’s opposition, Logan Lightning also kick off their cup run with a 5-0 midweek win win over Annerley.
Rick Coghlan’s side sit fifth after three rounds of league action having picked up four points so far this season.
LAST TIME WE MET
Olympic defeated Logan 3-0 at Cornubia Park when the sides last met in September, 2021 with Zac Anderson, Shannon Brady and Daniel Leck all getting on the scoresheet.
Olympic also won 3-0 in the reverse fixture at Goodwin Park in their only other previous NPL clash with Logan, who competed in the league for the first time in 2021.
WHAT WAS SAID – Daniel Leck: Midfielder
“It’s going to be a good test for us, I think every team in the league this year is stronger, so we can’t afford to drop our standards in any game, we need to go out and put our all in for 90 minutes if we’re going to get the three points.
“It’s been a tough pre-season mentally, knowing I was out for the first two games, but once the season started watching the boys in the first two weeks, I was so proud of them performing well and getting good results.
“I’m glad to be back out there and I’m just hungry to keep those good results going.
“It’s exciting, sitting there watching the team in the first two week I was thinking this is unbelievable what we’ve got here and we’re only going to get better and better each week once we all start playing with each other, it’s going to be very dangerous what we can do this year.”
