Two matches have been set for this Saturday as the 2016 Waratah Cup Final takes centre stage on Sunday.
APIA Leichhardt Tigers v Parramatta FC, Saturday 2pm at Lambert Park
With two wins on the trot it seems APIA has finally found their groove.
Under the guide of new coach Danial Cummins, the Lambert Park side has begun living up to its potential.
A gutsy 1-0 win against Rockdale last week was in stark contrast to the side’s performances earlier in the season.
Tasuku Sekiya is a handful for any defence and should once again be the focus of the home side’s attack on Saturday.
Parramatta’s finals dream hangs by a thread and anything less than a win will all but eliminate them from playoffs contention.
Franco Consentino’s side suffered a 3-0 loss to Sydney Olympic last round and a similarly poor performance from the Melita Stadium based side will surely reap another poor result.
Rockdale City Suns v Hakoah Sydney City East, Saturday 7pm at Ilinden Sports Centre
Consistency is the key for Paul Reid’s Rockdale side during the final rounds of the PlayStation®4 NPL NSW Men’s competition.
A frustrating 1-0 loss on the road to APIA allowed Manly United leapfrog the Suns into third spot last week.
Consistent performances are needed to set Rockdale as a legitimate PlayStation®4 NPL NSW Men’s premiership contender.
While finals football is not on the cards for Hakoah Sydney City East, the competition new boys will be determined to end their season on a high.
Mark Robertson’s side has proven itself to be a tough customer and could be a party spoiler for the top teams.
