Jay Azzopardi scored twice in the loss and he will be keen to add to his six goals for the season against a top four side.

Rounding off the weekend is APIA FC Futsal taking on Sydney City Eagles at Valentine Sports Park on Saturday night.

APIA FC Futsal hope to bounce back after their 8-4 loss in the Match of the Round to SD Raiders Futsal last weekend.

The result leaves them on the outside looking in for the top four and three points could be vital to their chances to get back in.

They will look to their key players in Guilherme Mazkurwicz Pansonato, Italo Wanderley and Dean Lockhart to push them forward.

Sydney City Eagles will be keen to get back in the winner’s circle after their 10-2 loss to West City Crusaders last Saturday.

It will be a tough ask for the Eagles to make the top four but the proud club will want to finish out the season on a high.
