Heat's going out of the Fire

THE Sunshine Coast Fire's season is all but over after a 3-1 away defeat at Palm Beach that didn't reflect the performance.

The Fire were sitting comfortably in third place after round nine of the PS4 NPL QLD Men's league, but have gone on a shocking form slump to record just one point in the past eight matches.

The Fire, a once feared team won the league in back in 2012, but have since gone into a rebuild phase to become one of the youngest sides in the competition.

Senior coach Paul Arnison said despite his team being young there were aspects of yesterday's game that shouldn't have happened.

"You can be inexperienced, young, naïve, but it doesn't matter if you're 16 or 35, you still have to put your head on the line and defend crosses for your team," he said.

The Fire went down 3-0 to poor defending at set pieces but the injection of two under-18 debutants spurred them on to find the back of the net and end on a positive note.

"The determination and spirit of the boys to keep going was a pleasure to watch.

"It's a results business, I understand that, but we're going to make mistakes so I'm not going to be critical."

The Fire play fourth placed Redlands United next Sunday at Sunshine Coast stadium in what should be another tough match for his young side, but Arnison is confident they can turn their losing ways around.

"The effort and commitment is there - we just need a bit more quality" he said.
