It is Round 18 and the finish line is in sight with only five rounds to go in the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s competition.
While Blacktown City look odds on to clinch the Premiership, the battle for the remaining four playoff spots looks set to go down to the wire. This week’s match of the round features two teams desperate to lock down their playoff fates as Rockdale City Suns host Manly United FC at Ilinden Sports Centre on Sunday.
Sydney United 58 FC v Sydney FC, 4pm Sunday at Sydney United Sports Centre
The finals are in reach for Sydney United 58 but competition newcomers Sydney FC will be4 out to make the Reds top five ambitions all the more difficult when they face off on Sunday.
United 58 were unlucky to come away from their Round 17 clash in Wollongong without a point and will need to bounce back quickly against a difficult young Sky Blues team.
The Reds have lacked the winning edge they displayed during their incredible run of victories from earlier in the season and have been let down by momentary lapses and poor finishing.
Panny Nikas as settled back into his spot in the line-up while striker Chris Payne will hope to be the source of goals United 58 are desperate for.
While the finals are out of reach for Sydney FC they will be hoping to continue the form which helped them upset APIA Leichhardt Tigers.
Games featuring the young Sky Blues are always ones for the fans and this clash shouldn’t be any different.
