WNPL Preview | Round 16

Metro v Uni R16

Metro United WFC vs Adelaide University
Venue: VALO Football Centre
Date: 5/07/2019 08:15 PM

It’s 4th v 5th tonight at VALO as Metro United look to keep hold of 4th spot. A win for Metro will give them a 7 point breather over 5th placed Adelaide Uni, however a win for Uni will put them only 1 point out of finals contention with only weeks to play in the minor rounds.

Metro United enter tonight after a shocking 3-0 loss at the hands of Adelaide Comets last week but will boosted by the return of star player Kristy Moore. Moore has been nursing an injury since Round 11, however the team will be high in confidence knowing the experience she brings into the squad.

Adelaide Uni will be looking to pounce on Metro and show that their 2-1 over third placed Salisbury Inter last week was not just a once off. Adelaide Uni will look to climb into the finals contention and show their true strength with a magnificent line-up of players.

Comets v Inter R16

Adelaide Comets vs Salisbury Inter
Venue: West Beach Parks Football Centre
Date: 5/07/2019 08:00 PM

Salisbury Inter look to continue their good season form and look to secure a top three finish for the first time. However in their way is an in form and confident Adelaide Comets. Comets are coming off an astonishing 3-0 win over the 2018 premiers of Metro United.

The Match at TK Shutter last Saturday night shows that Mansueto’s side has the skill to out play the experience of a squad such as Metro. Mansueto will look to the leadership of Georgia Johnson down back and Sarah Chappel up front to try and pull of their second upset in two weeks.

Inter will look to bounce back after a disappointing 2-1 loss at the hands of Adelaide Uni last week. Inter now only hold 3rd spot by 2 points and risk dropping to 4th spot. Something they haven’t done since Round 7 (Inter have only been outside the top 3 for 2 rounds this season).

Both previous encounters this season have resulted in 2-0 and 2-1 results in favour of Inter so they will look to continue their form this evening.
