Match Preview: Mt Druitt v Sydney FC

Mt Druitt Town Rangers v Sydney FC, 7pm Saturday at Popondetta Park

Mt Druitt Town Rangers will be out to end Sydney FC’s finals hopes when the two sides face off this Staurday night at Popondetta Park.

The Rangers are coming off a 1-0 loss to APIA Leichhardt but a return home should be the perfect remedy as they push for a bounce back win.

Club Captain Carlos Saliadarre has been a rock for Mt Druitt in between the posts this season and the club captain will be up for another big game this week.

The possible return of John Roberts, who missed out last week, could be the difference maker for the Rangers with his dynamic play up front likely to test the inexperienced Sydney FC defence.

The Young Sky Blues have hit a few hurdles in recent matches which has seen them drop from first down to sixth on the ladder.

They remain only five points off top spot and will be pushing hard for at least a maiden finals berth.

The combination of Patrick Wood and Antonio Saracino at the top of the attack will be key if Sydney are to take all three points.

Mt Druitt has proven a tough side to beat this season and Sydney FC will need to rediscover their early season magic if they are to take all three points from this contents.
