NPL WA round 4: Perth SC on a high and with Bayswater City in sights

PERTH SC skipper Clark Keltie has said his team is ticking along nicely in the National Premier Leagues WA (NPL WA) after last week’s win over Floreat Athena, and is relishing taking on Bayswater tomorrow.

“I was really pleased with last week’s result and I thought we played some decent football,” he said. “I don’t think we are at our best yet, but nine points from three games is very positive,” he said.

“Saturday is a big game for both clubs, and one which will give both sides a good indication of where they are at. I’m looking forward to another solid performance and ultimately three points.”

ECU Joondalup will be looking for its first win of the season when it entertains Inglewood United at ECU Football Stadium tomorrow.

NPL WA joint top goalscorer Gordon Smith said ECU’s players were working hard to turn around its season.

“The boys are looking forward to the game, the training has been up-beat and there’s been a buzz around the player group,” he said.

“Of course we are disappointed with the slow start but that’s behind us. We are only focused on our next opponent.

“Inglewood will be strong, as they were last season, so we will need to be on our game to get the three points.”

The round kicks off tonight when Joondalup United hosts Subiaco at Percy Doyle Reserve with both sides looking for its first win of the season.

In other matches, Armadale hosts unbeaten Sorrento at Alfred Skeet Reserve, while Mandurah City travels to Macedonia Park to take on Stirling Lions.

Balcatta, buoyed by last week’s first win of the season against Armadale, travels to Ashfield Reserve to take on Perth Glory, while the unbeaten Cockburn City heads to E&D Litis Stadium to take on hosts Floreat Athena.
