Blacktown City FC v St George City FA
3:00 pm, Sunday 6 August, Landen Park
Blacktown City host St George City at Landen Park as they look to pull off a title story for the ages.
The side performed a second-half turnaround to defeat APIA Leichhardt 2-1 last Saturday.
Ignacio Corral and Reuben Awaritefe each scored after the hour mark to win Blacktown’s eighth match on the bounce.
Mark Crittenden’s team moved just seven points away from first and look like an unstoppable force at the moment.
However, winning all final four games is likely their only chance of claiming the title with APIA still the favourites to take out the competition.
St George City are also in some great form, winning four out of their last five matches.
The team most recently flogged Mount Druitt Town Rangers 6-0 with six different goalscorers.
Among them was striker Presley Ortiz and the ever-reliable Pedro Ferrari from fullback.
Ferrari has stood out for Mirko Jurilj’s team, with the Brazilian defender firing home three goals in 2023.
It was a pulsating 2-2 draw earlier in the season with St George snatching a point in stoppage time.
This is another high-stakes clash at the top of the table with it hard to pick between these teams going into Sunday.
