With a highly entertaining round one of the ASNGCPL in the bank, we take a look at what to expect from round two action this weekend!
Nerang vs Surfers (Friday 13th of March, Bob Jeffrey Field- KO 8:30pm)
The Eagles come into the clash with forced changes due to suspension woes after the round one clash against Coomera, with Russell Miner, Lewis Scally and David Reid all set to miss the match up. Apollo on the other hand are coming off a 10-0 victory over newly promoted Robina City in Sunday afternoon action and will be looking to continue their good run of form in front of goal when they travel to Bob Jeffrey Field tomorrow evening. With the two coaches always providing an interesting fixture regardless of the club they coach at, we can expect a fast paced and free flowing match to kick off round 2.
Southport vs Palm Beach (Saturday 14th of March, Ashmore Village Park- KO 4:00pm)
The Warriors host the Sharks in their first home match of the 2020 season looking to bounce back after throwing away two points in their round one clash. The Warriors know that they can score plenty of goals as round one showed but will turn their focus on ensuring they can tighten up at the back and manage late stages of the game in the coming weeks. The Sharks will be looking to make it back to back wins to start the season after they defeated 10 man Broadbeach United 1-0 with a late goal in that clash.
Burleigh vs Coomera (Saturday 14th of March, Pizzey Park- KO 5:00pm)
Colin Phelan’s Bulldogs know that they got out of jail last weekend after a rollercoaster performance and will be looking to stabilize and get back on track when they host a Coomera side full of confidence. The Colts come into the clash after an impressive victory in round one action and know that they face a sterner test than the one they faced last weekend with an undermanned Nerang. Both sides will be looking at this clash as momentum builders to set up the remainder of the early stages of the season, so expect not much between the two come Saturday evening at Pizzey Park.
Broadbeach vs Robina (Saturday 14th of March, Nikiforides Park- KO 6:30pm)
Broadbeach will be looking to build on their defensive performance from last week when they host Robina City at Nikiforides Park on Saturday evening. Having played the large portion of their round one clash with 10 men, the Dolphins know another structured and solid performance for the duration of the 90 minutes will give them a strong opportunity to claim their first three points of the year. Robina will be hoping to quickly forget the woes of their round one clash and will welcome some of their new recruits back into the line up this weekend as they look for maximum points to kick off their 2020 campaign.
