The football fixture computer hasn’t been to kind to us this Saturday, with both Rockingham City and Mandurah City playing away from home.
Rockingham make the journey to Balcatta on Saturday in a game they need to be getting something from. Balcatta are in 10th position and only 2 points ahead of Rocky, so a win for the travelling team will make them move from the bottom of the table.
Mandurah City make the even further journey when they travel to Quinns FC. Mandurah are on a good run of form at the moment and will have to maintain this as Quinns are currently in third place. A win for the Dolphins could see them go 6th in the table.
