ECU Joondalup v Perth SC – Preview

Posted on August 31, 2013 in 'News'

ECU host the Perth Soccer Club at the ECU Campus Arena in round 21 of the All Flags Premier Division on Saturday evening (7pm)

It’s the final home game of the season and Dale McCulloch is looking forward to ending their home campaign with a win. “I’m hoping we keep building on the last few weeks and hopefully take away more points from the game. We have won the last two at home and it would be nice to make it a hat-trick against a good Perth side,” McCulloch said.

“It’s our last home game so I would like to thank the supporters who have been coming to watch us all year and hope to see you next year as we push for team success.”

Midfielders David Caine and Jon Higgins are in doubt for Joondalup, while Perth is minus English duo Ashley Corker and Clark Keltie.

Perth keeper Francis Soale has impressed since his move from Inglewood, at the back Daniel Coletta, Luka Njegich, Jarrod Belford and Josh Wilkins have formed a tight unit, while in the middle of the park the experienced Antonio Naglieri, Dom de Felice and Josh Periera pull the strings.

Down the flanks the pacey Robbie Sciassia and Frank Furfaro will need to be watched closely, while up front David Onoforo and Liam Boland is their route to goal.

They arrive at the Arena in 7th place on the table, only three points ahead of ECU, and after holding league leaders Stirling Lions to a 1-1 draw in the last round, with David Onoforo on target.

The under 18’s game kicks off at 3pm, with the top two teams in the league in action, while the Reserves meet at 5pm.
