STIRLING Lions will aim to extend its six-game winning streak when it faces Balcatta in round nine of the National Premier Leagues WA at Macedonia Park tomorrow.

The Lions were lucky to grind out a 5-2 win against State League Division Two side Curtin University in last weekend’s FFA Cup preliminary quarter-final, after being held to 2-2 at the end of regular time.

Balcatta have a tough task on its hands as it will be without Kieron Stallard and Alex Suleski, who were both dismissed in last weekend’s FFA Cup loss to Inglewood United.

High-flying Inglewood will look to deny Subiaco of its first three points when it travels to Rosalie Park.

Sorrento will hope to get back to winning ways when it faces Armadale at Alfred Skeet Reserve.

ECU Joondalup hosts champions Bayswater City at ECU Football Stadium, while Perth SC face Cockburn City at Dorrien Gardens.
