MATCH PREVIEW | Hume City vs South Melbourne

It’s a top of the table clash at ABD Stadium when Hume City plays host to South Melbourne on Saturday night.


With Bentleigh Greens, South Melbourne and Hume City all log jammed at the top of the table, a win for either side could help push it clear of the chasing pack. After a 1-0 win over Brunswick City in the FFA Cup and a 3-0 NPL Victoria win over Melbourne Victory, the home side will be heading into the game with confidence high. South Melbourne enjoyed a fast start to their season, however they suffered their first loss of the season in an upset 6-3 defeat to Richmond SC in round 5.



South Melbourne will field a face known well to Hume City fans, with Marcus Schroen likely to feature after making the switch to the Lakeside Stadium based club in the off-season. South added a few other new names to their squad during the summer break, most notably Matt Millar who joins after a spell with Melbourne City and Matthew Foschini who most recently featured for Oakleigh Cannons.


Saturday night’s clash looks set to be a tight, tense encounter, however with both sides dangerous in attack expect to see plenty of goal mouth action. Joseph Franjic will likely slot back into midfield after serving a one game suspension, whilst up front Daniel Clark will look to keep his spot in the number nine position after scoring a brace against Melbourne Victory.
