Kingborough Lions United will make several changes to their line-up for tomorrow’s Lakoseljac Cup quarterfinal against Hobart Zebras at 2pm at Lightwood Park.

The Lions lost 6-0 to Olympia Warriors in a league match last weekend and must produce a remarkable change in form if they are to reach the semi-finals of this competition.{jcomments on}
