NPL 1 Preview: Blacktown City v Wanderers


The Wanderers Academy NPL 1 first grade team will play in their final match of the season on Friday night against Blacktown City.

With Finals out of the equation for both Blacktown and the Wanderers, the two sides will be looking to finish the season on a high with a win. 

The Red & Black head into the match after a tight 1-0 loss to Sydney Olympic last weekend. 

It was a fast start for Zwaanswijk’s men as Dean Pelekanos, Dauntae Mariner, and Lochlan Constable all had chances inside the first ten minutes.

The Wanderers attack was slicing through the Olympic defence like butter and the match had the potential to turn ugly had the finishing been better for the Red & Black.

Like the story of the Wanderers season, the Red & Black deserved at least a point from the fixture and were very unlucky with the final result.

Blacktown will be looking for their fourth straight win in recent times and the Red & Black will need to be wary of their attack, having scored 10 goals in their last three games.
