The Weekend Preview

There isn’t any local senior action in the region, with the fixture computer not being to kind to us this weekend.

In the WANPL, Rockingham City will be trying their best to beat one of the competitions strongest teams as they travel to Perth Soccer Club.

Head Coach Goran Stajić, points out that Perth SC is a well balanced team and if RCFC win, it will come down to hard work and perseverance.

“We have been playing well all season even though the results have not been going our way but I expect us to be at the required level on Saturday. We will obviously need a little luck, and considering that we haven’t been getting much lately, I hope that it will come back to us at Dorrien Gardens. In saying that, we know what we need to do. We have a plan, we are going there to compete and win, and I believe that we can succeed.

Perth SC is well balanced, it is a team full of experienced players, internationals and is a hardened NPL club. We will have to be at our best if we want to achieve a positive result.”
