KNOX City will look for a change in fortunes under new boss David Stack.
City continued its losing form, going down 3-0 to Nunawading City at Knox Regional Soccer Centre in their FFV State League 3 south-east match on Saturday.
Stack will lead City for the rest of the season as the club fights to avoid relegation to the provisional leagues.
At the 14-minute mark Knox managed to get the ball back and into an attacking area and when the Nunawading keeper didn't clear a through ball properly it fell to Curran Ferns, whose shot was deflected by a defender for a corner.
From that corner the ball was easily cleared
by Nunawading and it countered swiftly
down the left and found Nememiah Verscharen, who headed the ball home to give his team a 1-0 lead.
Knox quickly went back on the attack after the restart and after some good team passing, Tom Szabo managed to control the ball and get in a sizzling shot, beating the keeper but not the post.
A corner kick swung into the goalmouth ended with Nunawading's Maxim Solovyen reacting quickest to put the ball in the back of the net for Nunawading to go 2-0 up.
Denis Vucinic for Knox had his team's best chance at about the 52nd minute only to see his shot go just high.
Szabo also had a reasonable chance with a header but could not find the back of the net.
Nunawading's Stefan Benados made no mistake with a free header and Nunawading was up by 3-0.
Knox City travels to face top team Springvale City on Saturday at 3pm.
