WRITE us off at your own peril.

That's the message from Bonnyrigg coach Brian Brown after the White Eagles lost a heartbreaker to Blacktown City 1-0.

A 92nd-minute penalty gifted Blacktown the first spot in the Football NSW Men's 1 grand final after a dour struggle that yielded limited opportunities.

The premiers have a second chance to reach the grand final when they play Sydney Olympic at Lilys Football Centre on Sunday.

"That's the good part about finishing first is that we get another crack at it," Brown told the Champion.

"It was a tough way to lose in the final minutes — but that's football. We have won a few games like that in the last few weeks so we just need to bounce back and work hard to prepare for this week."

Brown said he was expecting nothing less than a tough battle against Sydney Olympic this week. Last year's champions have won both matches between the two teams this season.

Veteran goalkeeper Matt Nash is expected to be out with unjury..

Bonnyrigg will be in action against Blacktown City FC in the under-16s as they look to book a place with Sydney United 58 FC in the grand final. Sydney United 58 FC. Sydney United have also qualified for the under-18s grand final with a 2-0 win against Sutherland at the weekend.
