NWS Spirit FC v Blacktown City FC
5:30 pm, Saturday 3 June, Christie Park
Blacktown City travel to Christie Park to face NWS Spirit with the pressure on to stay in touching distance of the chasing back.
A 0-0 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers in round 17 has left City nine points away from second and dragged back into the middle of the table.
Spirit couldn’t make it three wins on the bounce going down 3-0 to St George City last weekend.
The side are now just seven points away from the relegation places and face a tough run of fixtures in the coming weeks.
David Perkovic’s team managed to stun Blacktown City earlier in the season with a 2-1 win at Landen Stadium.
Spirit’s home form has been the main source of success for the team in 2023 with four of their six victories coming at Christie Park giving them confidence heading into this one.
Both teams will be desperate to claim the points on Saturday to each end difficult patches of form in the NPL NSW Men’s.
