THERE'S still work to be done ahead of the Football Federation Australia (FFA) Cup clash with Country United if the weekend's practise games against Wanderers are any indication.

The Whitsunday Football Club's premier and reserve men's teams both played on Saturday.

They had mixed results.

The premiers tied with Wanderers 3-3, but coach Eric Thompson was less than impressed.

"Andrew Hodgen, our goalkeeper, was man of the match, which shows they were far more the superior team on the day," he said.

"We struggled to put together the football we've been practising ... it's going to be a learning curve to understand how I want them to play.

"The time we put football together we scored three goals but it was because of the performance of Andrew we were able to stay in the game."

The Whitsunday Sportspark will host next week's FFA Cup clash against Country United.
