The Northern NSW PlayStation 4 NPL Match of the Round will be contested at Lisle Carr Oval, as Charlestown City blues host South Cardiff Gunners.

Charlestown City Blues FC vs. South Cardiff FC
Sun 3 May 2:30 PM
Lisle Carr Oval
Match of the Round


Both of these sides currently sit outside the top four, and will be desperately looking to use this match to break their way inside to top quartet.

The Blues were thumped 4-0 in their opening match against Edgeworth, however marked their first home game of the season with a 4-2 win over Adamstown in Round 2.

The Gunners are one of four undefeated teams, having come back from two goal deficits in their opening two rounds. Of those four however, they are the only to not have won a match, as they could only manage a point in both games.


Edgeworth FC vs. Maitland FC
Fri 1 May 7:00 PM
Jack McLaughlan Oval

Edgeworth return home for their third Friday night home game of the season, this time welcoming Maitland, and they will be hoping that the rain holds off so they can play on a less heavier Jack McLaughlan Oval than in previous weeks.

This match has the potential to produce plenty of goals, after Edgeworth defeated Charlestown 4-0 in Round 1, but lost 4-1 to Magic in Round 3.

The home side is one of two teams to have played all three games, after competing in the only match played in Round 3. They lost their Round 2 match 2-0 away to Hamilton, so combined with their two Friday night matches, Edgeworth sit in fifth position.


Weston Workers FC vs. Newcastle Jets Youth
Sat 2 May 2:30 PM
Rockwell Automation Park

There is Northern NSW PS4 National Premier Leagues football being played both days this weekend, and Weston versus the Newcastle Jets Youth is the only match to occur on Saturday.

Weston are one of four undefeated sides in the 2015 season, having drew 0-0 with Adamstown in Round 1, and coming from behind to beat Lambton 2-1 in Round 2.

The Jets Youth are in eighth place on a single point after a Round 1 loss to Lambton and a draw to South Cardiff in Round 2. They squandered leads in both of those matches; leaving new coach Peter McGuiness still searching for his first win with the side.


Hamilton Olympic FC vs. Lambton Jaffas FC
Sun 3 May 2:30 PM
Darling Street Oval

In one of the most anticipated matches of the round, two top four sides clash when the Lambton Jaffas travel to Darling Street Oval to take on Hamilton Olympic.

Hamilton opened their season with a competitive but frustrating 0-0 draw against Broadmeadow Magic, then defeated Edgeworth 2-0 in Round 2.

Their Round 3 clash was postponed due to unplayable conditions at Adamstown Oval, so they will looking to remain undefeated this weekend, whilst gaining a second win in the process.


Broadmeadow Magic FC vs. Adamstown Rosebud FC
Sun 3 May 2:30 PM
Magic Park

The final match of Round 4 sees Adamstown Rosebud set to challenge league leaders Broadmeadow Magic away from home.

The Rosebud began the season with a scoreless draw, and then were defeated 4-2 a week later by Charlestown. Like most other sides in the competition their Round 3 match was postponed, leaving them still searching for their first win of the season.

Broadmeadow on the other hand played their Round 3 match, demolishing Edgeworth 4-1 away from home. They played out a scoreless draw in Round 1, and in Round 2 were victorious 5-1, and therefore they begin Round 4 in first place.
