Bentleigh Greens vs Heidelberg United - Friday 23 May 14 @ 8:30PM @ Kingston Heath
Bentleigh had a disappointing 1-1 draw at Goulburn Valley, while the Bergers continued on their merry way with a 1-0 win over the Knights. A Greek derby somewhat. Should get a decent crowd, if Hellas fans aren’t doing anything on the Friday night. Bentleigh is hot and cold, and the Bergers have hit a hot streak. I don’t think this will matter in the derby environment. Bentleigh Greens 1 – Heidelberg United 1.
Pascoe Vale vs Oakleigh Cannons - Friday 23 May 14 @ 8:30PM @ Hosken Reserve
Pascoe Vale was unlucky at South losing 1-0, while Oakleigh drew 1-1 at home to Northcote which drew the cheers of the crowd at Lakeside when announced. Pascoe aren’t too bad. Attacking wise they are fine, midfield they are fine, defensively they are improving yet have a long way to go. Their tackles leave a lot to be desired. Will they be able to beat the Cannons? Oakleigh is losing pace on first placed South. six points behind, and they will be looking to keep up or close the gap if South was to lose on Sunday. Pascoe Vale 2 – Oakleigh Cannons 2.
Dandenong Thunder vs Ballarat Red Devils - Saturday 24 May 14 @ 7:00PM @ George Andrews Reserve
Dandenong had a shock 0-3 loss at home to Werribee, while Ballarat won their first home game 3-2 against Gully. What’s happening at Dandy? If some chojek opa rok bro can explain the situation, it will be handy. However, I still think Dandy will be too good for Ballarat and won’t go into meltdown with 20 to go. Dandenong Thunder 2 – Ballarat Red Devils 1.
Hume City vs Green Gully - Sunday 25 May 14 @ 3:00PM @ Broadmeadows Valley Park
Hume had a 1-1 draw at Port Melbourne, while Gully lost 3-2 away at Ballarat. Gully has the worst defence in the league having conceded 25 goals. Hume have the third best only conceding 10. If my calculations are correct, Hume should win this one. Hume City 2 – Green Gully 0.
Melbourne Knights vs Port Melbourne Sharks - Sunday 25 May 14 @ 3:00PM @ Somers Street
Melbourne Knights lost to an own goal at the Bergers last week 1-0, while Port Melbourne drew 1-1 at home to Hume. The only thing keeping the Knights out of relegation is their goal difference of -6. Port on the other hand unfortunately, are not in relegation trouble. Oh how I wish they were. Melbourne Knights 2 – Port Melbourne Sharks 0.
Northcote City vs Goulburn Valley Suns - Sunday 25 May 14 @ 3:00PM @ John Cain Memorial Park
Northcote had a 1-1 draw at Oakleigh, while Goulburn Valley Suns held Bentleigh to a 1-1 draw. This will be an interesting match. Northcote are at the same level as the Suns. I reckon Northcote might be a tad too good by a bee's dick and beat the Suns. Northcote City 2 – Goulburn Valley Suns 1.
Werribee City FC vs South Melbourne FC - Sun 25 May 14 @ 03:00PM @ Galvin Park
The match of the round. Werribee stunned the footballing world with a late 0-3 win at Dandenong, while South wasn’t good, but wasn’t bad beating Pascoe Vale 1-0 at home. South is now nine games, nine wins. A record in anyone's language. Speaking of language, has anyone visited Werribee's webpage recently? Scroll down and check out the match write up, in Italian! Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is not allowed under the rules of competition. No ethnic clubs allowed to advertise their ethnicity. I expect the FFV to drag them to the tribunal over this. This is an outrage! I’ll be jetting into Avalon and taking the short trip to Werribee. Have never been there before so don’t know what to expect. Will there be Italian flags everywhere? Will there be Italian style Ultras ? Should I go casual to survive, or should I wear club colors? South weren’t bad or good last week, but ground out the result against a Pascoe Vale side who was intent on not conceding. Instead they were happy to chop at will, while the referee destroyed the game. Some decisions were daft. Fucken woeful. FFV, give us some decent refs FFS! South will be looking to get their 10th win in a row at Werribee. They are an unknown quantity and will always be a danger game. They will not spoil the party of the team of the century. We are South Melbourne, we DO NOT lose to shit teams like Werribee. Leigh Minopoulos will hopefully go on a rampage. Werribee City 0 – South Melbourne 4.
