The final round of the PS4 NPL NSW Men’s 2 Preseason Cup is finally upon us with neither final place yet to be decided.
POOL 1 –
Mounties Wanderers vs Mt Druitt Town Rangers @ Cook Park
At Cook Park on Sunday night, the Mounties Wanderers welcome the Mt Druitt Town Rangers.
The Mounties hold their fate in their own hands and know that victory will ensure them a place in the final the following week. The Rangers can’t qualify for the final but will want to get a good hit out with the season only two weeks away.
Bankstown City vs Bankstown Berries @ Jensen Park
It’s the Bankstown derby on Sunday night at Jensen Park as City take on the Berries.
The Berries will be hoping for a Wanderers slip up as three points and anything but a Mounties win will see them move into top place and the Grand Final.
St George vs Macarthur Rams @St George Soccer Stadium
St George and the Macarthur Rams will do battle on Sunday night at St George Soccer Stadium.
Neither side can make the final but both will be looking to sharpen their squads with the season just around the corner.
POOL 2 –
Central Coast vs Northern Tigers @Pluim Park
At Pluim Park on Sunday evening at 6:00pm, Central Coast welcome the Northern Tigers.
Three points is imperative for both sides here to make the final along with boosting their goal difference. It all may still not be enough though if Spirit registers at least a point in their game.
Spirit FC vs Fraser Park @ Christie Park
Christie Park will be the venue for Sunday nights clash between Spirit FC and Fraser Park.
Only disaster will stop Spirit from finishing first and cementing their spot in the final. A draw is all they need and with Fraser registering three draws so far in the Cup, it looms a large possibility.
Sydney University vs Hakoah Sydney City East
At the picturesque Lambert Park on Sunday afternoon, Sydney University host Hakoah Sydney City East.
Both teams are still searching for their first wins of the Preseason Cup with only one point so far. A win here could help propel the sides confidence with the season only a couple weeks away.
