South Melbourne will meet St Albans for the second time this season, with the boys looking to continue on their winning ways after their impressive 3-0 win over ladder leaders Heidelberg United, while St Albans will be striving to bounce back from their narrow 1-0 loss to Pascoe Vale last Friday night.
South Melbourne (DWWWW)
South Melbourne is in red hot form in the second half of the season with four wins in five matches. Coming from a one week rest due to the unavailability of Lakeside Stadium, South were able to dominate right from the outset against the Bergers as a Nick Epifano brace and a goal by in-form striker Milos Lujic secured maximum points for the club against their traditional rivals. With an important victory against the ladder leaders, South is now in striking distance of top spot and will be looking for nothing less than three points against St Albans when the two teams meet at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
St Albans Saints (DLLLL)
Saint Albans have had a dismal five weeks with four losses in their past five matches including a narrow 1-0 loss to Pascoe Vale courtesy of a first half goal to Prevelic in the eighth minute. Sitting bottom of the table with only one win for the season, the Saints will be striving to turn their season around starting with a victory against an in-form South side away from home.
Head to Head
The last time these two teams met was in Round 5 this year where South Melbourne secured a 2-0 win over the St Albans Saints at Churchill Reserve.
South Melbourne have won their last three games against St Albans.
South urges all fans to come and support the boys in their Round 18 encounter with bottom side St Alban at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
