In an Eastern suburbs derby, Adelaide Blue Eagles will welcome MetroStars to Marden Sports Complex with both sides looking for a win and three crucial points as their prime objective.

MetroStars will go into this week’s match with only a three-day break on the back of their mid-week Westfield FFA Cup appearance against Bankstown Berries – which ended in a 2-1 defeat.

The depth of their squad will be severely tested as they try to field a balanced line-up that will be capable of running out the game.

Blue Eagles, with their season hanging by a thread, will go into this contest with the knowledge that come the final stages of the game, fitness will dictate the final outcome.

Seventh place Campbelltown City host bottom of the table Cumberland United this Saturday in Round 20 of the PlayStation 4 National Premier League .

Campbelltown go into the match as favourites, but their inconsistency will be of concern, with so much riding on the final few matches of the season. A string of wins from here on may well see the Champions play Finals football in 2017 and with that a chance at defending their crown.

On the other hand, Cumberland sit at the bottom of the table, and are guaranteed for relegation regardless of the results in the final rounds.They can still technically climb to 11th place with three wins if Blue Eagles lose their next three games.

The in-form Croydon Kings will travel to The Parks Football Centre to face Adelaide United for their Round 20 encounter in the PlayStation 4 National Premier League on Saturday.

The Reds sit 10th amongst the competition, just one point clear of the drop zone, with their last result a 1-0 win over Adelaide Blue Eagles in Round 18.

To keep their spot safe from any shock surprises, Huss Skenderovic’s men will want to take as many points home as possible with three rounds remaining.

Croydon sit fourth, having been in immaculate form and have beat top sides Adelaide City and Adelaide Comets in recent weeks and will be primed for their finals berth.

Adelaide City hope to extend their lead at the top of the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues with a win over Adelaide Olympic at Adelaide City Park this Saturday.

The Black and Whites lead at the top of the table dwindled to four points in the past three weeks due to losses against Croydon Kings and West Torrens Birkalla.

City stopped its winless run last week with a hard fought 2-0 win over last-placed Cumberland United.

The win over Cumberland should give City the required confidence boost heading into the final three games of the season.

Olympic are coming off an impressive 2-1 win against Adelaide Comets, which leaves them in touching distance of both the top six and the relegation zone.

Christopher Munker’s full Match Preview is HERE.



Round 20 gets underway on Friday night between Adelaide Comets and West Adelaide at SA Athletics Stadium. Comets will be looking to rebound back into the form which had them in the top three until a fortnight ago. This won’t be an easy task against Phil Stubbins’ West Adelaide who are just about the competition’s form side. Kick-off is 8pm.
