Let’s get onto the preview.

Match of the Round: Nepean FC vs Blacktown City FC, Sunday 2 June, 3pm, Cook Park

Nepean FC host Blacktown City FC in the Match of the Round at Cook Park on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts didn’t have the best preparation for this contest after an 8-0 loss to SD Raiders FC away from home.

Nepean FC coach Joseph Ellul will hope his side can lift against one of their local rivals and put in a solid performance.

They might need a big performance from Jemica Artillaga between the sticks to repel the opposition’s attack.

Blacktown City FC won in style with a 6-0 win against Camden Tigers at Landen Stadium last weekend.

The combination between Amber Precious and Eloise Hansen has been good outlet up front for Blacktown City FC.

The Saints look to brush off their 3-1 defeat to Bankstown City Lions FC in the Match of the Round.

They will be without Alexia Saltirov and Emma-Jane Winston after their red cards in the defeat which dents their top four hopes.

This game will be a mouth-watering contest between two sides who can find the back of the net vying for finals football.

Mt Druitt Town Rangers FC kept on their merry way with a 4-1 win over South East Phoenix FC last weekend.

It has been death, taxes and Rita Boateng on the scoresheet for the Town Rangers FC in recent weeks which has seen her rise up the goalscoring charts.

The Lions will be keen to roar back after their 7-0 defeat to Central Coast Mariners FC at Pluim Park last weekend.

The Lions hope they can break their run of outs lately and pick up something and move off the bottom of the ladder.

South Coast Flame FC took the lead before they fell to a 2-1 defeat against leaders Hills United FC.

The Flame have lost three games on the bounce so coach Daniel Naumovski will be hoping they can reignite their campaign.

Despite the loss, it was a proud moment for Aqeelah Osmany and Felicity Hutchinson who made their First Grade debuts.

SD Raiders FC made a statement with their 8-0 win over Nepean FC at Ernie Smith Reserve last weekend.

They shared the scoring around in the huge win and it underlined the depth the young side has in their squad in 2024.

Taina Almeida leads the way with nine goals for SD Raiders FC and has been a shrewd signing for the south-west side.

South East Phoenix FC vs Hills United FC, Sunday 2 June, 3:15pm, South Nowra Football Complex

South East Phoenix FC welcome Hills United FC to South Nowra Football Complex on Sunday afternoon.

The hosts battled hard before they fell to a 4-1 loss to high flying Mt Druitt Town Rangers FC last weekend.

Coach Mick McGovern will be glad with the turnaround in recent weeks and they can take a big scalp on their home turf.

Bankstown City Lions FC came from behind to triumph 3-1 against St George FC in the Match of the Round.

Chelsea Greguric scored twice in the win and she has added another option for the Bankstown City Lions FC attack.

It was a winning debut for keeper Keeley Segavcic and the experienced shot stopper will be looking for another big performance on Sunday.
