North Sunshine Eagles’ hot start to the Victorian Premier League 2 season has continued, with another win on Saturday night.

The win was the Eagles third and they remain undefeated after the first four rounds.

Coach Ben Isai said getting early wins on the board was important.

“Being undefeated after four rounds is a good start to the year,” he said. “It was a good performance by the boys and we’re happy to get the win.”

Isai said they started the match well and that was where they were able to set up the 2-0 win.

He said they probably could have been further ahead at the break had they made the most of their opportunities.

He said they left it later than he would have liked to have made the win more comfortable having been in control early in the match.

“To put out a performance like that against a team that was flying coming in, I’m really proud of the boys.”

Ndue Mujeci and Farah Farah were the goal scorers for the Eagles.

While happy with where the side is sitting, one of two teams with three wins and a draw, Isai knows this is only the beginning.

“We haven’t played the whole 90 minutes, whole overall game,” he said.

“We’ll continue to build and we don’t want to be peaking in round one, two or three. Hopefully we can keep taking this into the Nunawading game.

“Some of things we are traditionally good at, we weren’t good at on Saturday, we need to fix those areas, but there’s a lot of positives to take back to the players.”

The Eagles this week face Nunawading City which has won two of its four matches on Friday night.

Isai said it will be another challenging game.

“Hopefully we can stay undefeated after five rounds.”

Meanwhile in the National Premier League, St Albans Saints have announced a coaching change.

The club announced on Sunday that it has mutually agreed to part ways with coach Ryan McGuffie.

The club said it will be making an announcement regarding the appointment of a new coach shortly.

The Saints had won two games and drawn one in the first eight rounds under McGuffie.

The final of those matches was on Friday night, with the Saints losing to Heidelberg United.

In other results, Melbourne Knights beat the Manningham United Blues 2-1 on Saturday night and Green Gully had a 1-1 draw with Dandenong City.

The Knights are now up to eighth spot and Green Gully is in 10th.
