Preview :: SMFC vs Bulleen Lions


SMFC will meet the Bulleen Lions for the second time this season with South looking to continue on their winning ways after their tough 2-1 win over Kingston City on Monday night, while Bulleen will be looking to bounce back from their narrow 2-1 defeat to ladder leaders Heidelberg United last weekend.

South Melbourne (WWWDW)

South Melbourne have had a superb five weeks with four wins from five matches, with their unbeaten run extending to nine matches in all competitions. A narrow 2-1 win over Kingston City courtesy of a Matt Millar strike into the back of the net with 15 minutes remaining, means the club are now in fifth position on the ladder for the first time this season. While South have a big FFA Cup match on Wednesday night against Dandenong City to think about, the defending NPL Champions will be striving for no more than three points when they host the Bulleen Lions at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Bulleen Lions (WWWLL)

Coming from a narrow 2-1 loss to Avondale, the Lions were unable to turn things around against the Bergers last week. Despite Clark scoring the equaliser in the 30th minute for the visitors to level the scores at 1-1, the home side were able to find the back of the net five minutes later courtesy of a Steven Pace header to secure all three points. With the Lions sitting at the bottom end of the table, they will desperate for a win against an in-form South away from home.

Head to Head

The last time these two teams meet was in Round 1 this year where it was a 2-2 draw at the Veneto Club.
There have been two draws in the past three matches between the two sides.

SMFC urges all fans to come and support the boys when they take on the Bulleen Lions at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
