Manly United hoping to leave Sydney United Red faced
Rather than fear Sydney United 58 FC’s galaxy of stars, Manly United always relish taking on the former National Soccer League heavyweights.
The squads go head to head this Saturday night at Cromer Park, and Jamie Lobb is predicting an attacking frenzy.
“We are excited to play them, there is definitely a long standing rivalry between the clubs,” the Manly captain said.
“They don’t have a coach at the moment (after Jason Culina was recently sacked), so maybe it is a good time to play them.
“Both teams like to attack, so you would think a few goals will follow.
“Our focus is to keep picking up points – we are in the top five now which is great after our poor start, but three points this weekend at home would be great.”
Adding spice to the round 10 clash are three key names on the Reds team sheet – Chris Payne, Matt Sim and Tom Manos – all previously on the books of Manly United.
Leigh Egger, Scott Balderson and Sam Wilson are racing the clock to be fit for the hosts.
Kick-off is 7pm
