Gold Coast United vs Logan Lightning Tips

Head to Head
Home advantage has been huge in this match-up. Lightning won the last time the two played in a 1-0 win, with United winning the match before by the same scoreline. Clearly playing in front of their own fans has a large bearing on the winner of this match.
Gold Coast United Form
United may have been hammered 6-0 in their last game, but before this they had been in good form. Three wins in a row over Brisbane City, Brisbane U21 and Olympic FC has seen the side move onto 20 points for the season so far. This is a fairly good tally and means they are only three points below rivals Gold Coast Knights, while they are 13 short of Queensland Lions at the top.
A victory in this match could be enough to move into four if there is a large goal swing, but United should remain contented with heaping the presure on the sides above them.
Logan Lightning Form
Logan Lightning have struggled massively all season, with the side unable to win any of their last six matches. Three draws and three defeats means the Lightning are in desperate need of a morale boosting win, but this seems unliekely against a United side in good form.
Lightning will likely have to remain contented with keeping the game tight, although they will likely have to contend with United wanting to take their anger out on them following their 6-0 humbling at the hands of Moreton Bay.
