WITH the Wolves' hides nailed firmly to their dressing room walls the Bulldogs will be looking forward to exorcising a Devil or two when Redlands United visit them on Sunday.
Their 2-1 win over Wolves, suffering only their second loss this season, has Capalaba FC firmly stamped as the Premiership-leading club's bogey side.
Now they are faced with the challenge of the number two team the Red Devils.
One of their first targets will be the Flying Scotsman Graham Fyffe, who has only to stay in front of Brisbane City's Antonio Murray to wrap up the Veto League Golden Boot.
Rhys Meredith, too, will need to be closely watched as he has proved he can cause problems up front and Redlands is one of the top-scoring sides..
But Fyffe is facing one of the better defences in the competition, led by the king of the air Geoff Hurford, so it will be a great tussle.
Although they went down 2-0 in the first round against Redlands, the Bulldogs' fighting spirit will be at its best when they face up to this local derby.
They need the win to keep in touch with a top-six spot, with five teams battling for the final two positions and another fight on their hands when they travel to Rochedale next week..
But they will take heart from the win over Wolves, which brought out new strengths in all areas of the field.
Playing out of position, Sam Roper had a blinder in defense, calmly coping with the best the opposition could produce and chasing down every ball.
Scot Sargent, as always, was a big threat in mid-field, and now the Sherwood brothers Jake and Josh have a few more games under their belt they make an attractive and penetrating duo.
Deep thought had gone into preparation for the game, and Hurford was outstanding as sweeper, marking danger man Kado Aoci out of the match completely, though Sasa Radulovic did hit the crossbar early in the game.
Greg Warden opened the scoring late in the first half when he beat two defenders and put the ball away effortlessly.
