Lightning ready to strike

Peel Lightning face a must win clash on Sunday in the latest round of the WA Netball League.

Facing the joint top of the table Western Roar it's another challenge for the Lightning to overcome.

Coach Naomi Pannell is under no illusion to the oppositions strengths.

"It's going to be quite intense actually, we've got a bit of a struggle ahead of us but we are up for the challenge." Pannell said.

Injuries to key defenders Mali Matau and Zoe Fisher will make it even tougher for Lightning.

Pannell said the squad had identified where they are going wrong.

"We've had to rectify a few issues that we've had over the last couple of weeks. We do really well up to half time and then in the second half we have a bit of a lull and lose our lead, we've been working hard on that at training so lets hope we see a turnaround."

This week is Indigenous round in the WANL with teams to don specially made uniforms for the occasion.
