SMFC meet the Bentleigh Greens in a much anticipated Dockerty Cup semi-final with SMFC striving to go one step closer to securing another Dockerty Cup title since 2015, while the Bentleigh Greens will also be striving to repeat their feat of 2016 and go into their second consecutive Dockerty Cup final.
South Melbourne (WWWW)
South Melbourne is in red hot form at the moment with five wins in their past five matches including a 8-1 thrashing of St Albans on the weekend. With a 5-4 victory against Dandenong City in the FFA Cup Round of 32 leading them to automatic qualification into the Dockerty Cup semis since 2015, the 2015 Dockerty Cup Champions will be striving to go one closer to their ninth Dockerty Cup title with a victory against the defending champions at Jack Edwards Reserve on Thursday night.
Bentleigh Greens (WWWDL)
The Bentleigh Greens have had a solid five weeks with three wins in the past five matches despite a narrow 1-0 loss to Pascoe Vale last weekend. With a narrow 3-2 victory over Green Gully in the FFA Cup Round of 32 leading them to their second consecutive Dockerty Cup semi-final, the defending champions will be striving to go one closer to their second Dockerty Cup title with a victory against NPL Heavyweights South Melbourne.
The last time these two teams met was in Round 12 this year where it was a 0-0 draw at The Kingston Heath Soccer Complex.
South urges all fans to come and support the boys in their huge Dockerty Cup semi-final against the Bentleigh Greens at Jack Edwards Reserve on Thursday night.
