Adelaide Uni has had a late change in their line-up with Goal Keeper Evelyn Goldsmith being called up to the Young Matildas. Coming off a strong 2-2 draw with reigning premiers, Uni will be putting their full support behind debutant Goal Keeper, Natalie Hayman, who has the pressure of ensuring Salisbury Inter star recruit Emily Condon doesn’t score. Salisbury Inter scored their first points of the season last week against Adelaide Comets with new recruits Emily Condon (Adelaide United) and Lilly Rydon (Cumberland United) securing the 2-0 win. Does Inter coach Tracey Jenkins have some insight into her old club Adelaide Uni which will help her score the 3 points tonight? Be sure to get to VALO to find out!
