NPL Preview: Springvale vs City

City’s slim title chances will be decided this Saturday they travel to face Springvale White Eagles for the final match of the 2022 NPL3 season.

With Preston Lions holding a 3 point lead at the top of the table but with an inferior goal difference (4 goals), a City win and Preston loss is required for one final twist in the title race.

John Maisano’s can only focus on what they can control and they will be motivated to end the season on a high with a win.

Raphael Borges Rodrigues will be a player to watch this week after he completed 65 minutes against Box Hill in his return to the NPL for the first time since May.

The last time the two teams met, City ran out 5-0 winners at Parade thanks to a brace from Arion Sulemani, and goals from Max Caputo, Sebastian Esposito and Lucas Byrns.
