NPL NSW Round 14 Preview


Marconi Stallions v Sydney FC, Sunday 3pm at Marconi Stadium

Marconi Stallions will be driven to build on last week’s emphatic win and make it back to back victories when they host Sydney FC on Sunday.

The Stallions displayed everything their attack is capable of as they scored five goals in a 5-2 win against rivals Rockdale City Suns.

While that performance gave Marconi fans something to smile about, the team still has a long way to go if they are to live up to their potential as Championship contenders.

Consistency will be the message from coach Peter Tsekenis as too many times this season Marconi have followed up from a win with a poor display.

Tsekenis has seemingly put all his faith in Marko Jesic to spearhead the side’s attack after allowing Mirjan Pavlovic to depart the club this week.

Expect few other changes as they will likely carry the same team from last week’s win.

For Sydney FC the win will be about snatching points from a tough road trip.

With two wins from their last three games, the Young Sky Blues are feeling pretty good despite a busy schedule for their young players.

Coach Jimmy van Weeren has done well to rotate his squad as the club’s  A-League and Asian Champions League campaign’s have robbed him of the chance to field his best team.

Hamish Lamberton once again showed his eye for goal last round and has carved a vital role in this team.

It will be a very tough encounter for Sydney with Marconi the favourites for the win at home.
