FORRESTFIELD United will be looking for its first win of the season when it takes on Sorrento at Percy Doyle Reserve this weekend.

It follows last Saturday’s game where the points were shared after Forrestfield United and Armadale fought out an 1-1 draw at the Wildlife Safari Stadium, Hartfield Park.

In front of another big crowd the hosts hit the front, Hasani Sinclair scoring from the spot and despite dominating possession it was Armadale who levelled, also from the spot, Michael Lawson on target.

“I thought we controlled the game and created a number clear cut chances, but unfortunately we didn’t take them which allowed Armadale to stay in the game,” Forrestfield winger Rhys Loxley said.

“Credit to Armadale, they battled hard and eventually got their goal. However, we will move on from it and take away plenty of positives leading into the game against Sorrento next week and hope that we can go one further and pick up our first three points for the season.”

Forrestfield coach Rod Banjac was pleased with his side’s second successive draw as an NPL WA club.

“We feel a little bit unfortunate not to take the three points but that’s what happens when you don’t take your chances in this league,” he said.

“We’ve come a long way in the last five years as a club, and we are showing everyone in this league we can match it with all the clubs.”
