Buono confident of turning things around

Despite the well documented injury problems that he has to deal with, B.C. Lions coach Wally Buono says his experience will see him through despite his side's indifferent start to the season.

The Lions are yet to win a match this season and are currently without 11 of their players while a number of others are thought to be playing through injuries but if there's one coach who can deal with it, it's the experienced Buono.

Tailback Andrew Harris was the latest to be added to the injury list after being forced from the field with a back injury in the 42-10 defeat against Hamilton on Saturday and the franchise are currently awaiting the results of an MRI scan. Those looking at the CFL online betting should remember this.

Although club doctor Bob McCormack has not yet delivered his verdict, rumour was abound that the 24-year-old may be forced to sit out the rest of the season in what we be another massive blow to the Vancouver franchise.

Harris tried to return to the field but couldn't continue after the initial pain killers had worn off and believes if anything it may have made the injury worse saying that he 'couldn't even push back to block'.

After his departure, Harris was joined on the sidelines by Rolly Lumbala, Akeem Foster, Dan McCullough and Travis Lulay leaving the Lions with very little pushback options. Those following the Latest CFL tips need to bear this in mind.

This is sure to test the resilience of the squad and Buono is confident that his side can come through this difficult patch having himself gone through a similar spell in 2005."The locker-room of '05 is totally different than it is today, but the mindset of everybody has to be the same" said Buono.

"But just because we lost doesn't mean we can turn around and flip a switch".
