THE stars from North Bendigo’s senior premiership team of 1974 will watch the Bulldogs tackle Lockington Bamawm United in this Saturday’s 14th round of the Heathcote District Football Netball League season.
LBU faces a daunting task on North Bendigo’s turf at Atkins Street.
The Bulldogs unbeaten run at home is one of the best in league history.
The Kahl Oliver-coached LBU is fifth on the ladder and will be determined to play well against a league heavyweight in the run to the finals.
The Cats will be well rested after a bye, while North Bendigo dominated last week’s clash at White Hills.
When these clubs last met it was North Bendigo which triumphed by 36 points.
Elmore will eye a great chance to end its winless run when it hosts White Hills.
Earlier in the season it was the Demons which beat the Bloods by 32 points.
Midfield battles will be crucial in this contest, which is where the Demons may hold a slight edge.
