It’s a weekend of rescheduled fixtures as six PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland clubs feature in a catch-up round.
Gold Coast City FC v Western Pride FC
Friday, June 10 | 8:00PM
Duncan McKenna Field, Gold Coast
Match Centre - http://bit.ly/1TSpY7k
Fresh off their first league defeat in three months, City are eyeing a possible return to the top four when they host the notoriously inconsistent Pride on the Glitter Strip.
Despite tasting defeat just three times in all competitions this season, City have failed to dispel doubts of their Premiership credentials and are looking to demonstrate greater ruthlessness in the run towards September.
However, the battling Pride have proven a tricky opponent this season despite languishing second-from-last in the standings, with only three defeats of more than a single goal throughout the league campaign.
History also suggests that, like their previous meeting, there will be goals in store – with both sides failing to keep a clean-sheet far this season.
Brisbane Roar FC Youth v Redlands United FC
Sunday, June 12 | 3:00PM
Cleveland Showgrounds, Redland City
Match Centre - http://bit.ly/1ZCDbQi
Young Roar are out to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they clash with Redlands at their shared home ground on Sunday.
Young Roar demonstrated their attacking capabilities mid-week by delivering four first-half goals to take the points from defending Champions Moreton Bay United.
However, their weakness has been consistency this season and will face a tough task against a Redlands side on a high after last weekend qualifying for the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 in a come-from-behind win over Rochedale Rovers.
A win for Redlands will see them reclaim second spot in the league standings and the bayside locals are expected to turn out in numbers to negate any home advantage for Young Roar.
Brisbane City FC v SWQ Thunder FC
Sunday, June 12 | 4:00PM
Corporate Travel Management Stadium, Brisbane
Match Centre – http://bit.ly/1XniSJ4
Thunder are seeking revenge as they return to the scene of their largest ever league defeat to take on the high-flying City.
The timing could not be better for the seventh-placed Thunder after their last start win over Fury ended a 26 match winless streak away from home while also marking the first time the Toowoomba club has recorded back-to-back wins in their short history.
However, they will face no easy task against a City side looking to lock away a league double over Thunder for a third straight year and maintain the pressure on the league’s top three.Form also favours the hosts who are undefeated in their past six league outings and without a league defeat since April.
