ALBION captain Brad Jenkinson has identified Kookaburras batsmen Cameron Milne as a key wicket for his side ahead of their clash at Kitchener Park on Saturday.
Milne is coming into Saturday’s game in hot form after compiling an unbeaten 73 in his side’s loss to Court House last week.
“I think Cameron is the prize wicket for us,” Jenkinson said.
“He can score runs and I think a lot of the Kookaburras batsmen have learned how to survive but not really score just yet.
“They are very capable of surviving and Cameron can certainly help them take that next step in terms of scoring runs.”
The Albion captain said he was also mindful of the Kookaburras bowling stocks.
“They have young James McGowan who has been bowling pretty well for them of late as well,” he said.
“He has turned it on of late and with some support from some of the older guys in the side they could be a bit of a handful.”
Albion will head into Saturday’s match with confidence after picking up a victory against Mornington last weekend.
“I reckon last weekend’s win will give us some added confidence,” Jenkinson said.
“We did have to work pretty hard for it and it took a team effort given we had a few blokes out of the side.
“Hopefully we can have those guys back this week and get a good result.”
Jenkinson said it was “pleasing” to see Kookaburras improve this season.
“I think they have certainly improved,” he said.
“From an overall league perspective it is pleasing to see them and Mornington improve, it help keeps things interesting.”
In the round’s other first grade action, Court House will do battle with Mornington at Wolseley Oval from 1pm.
