Manly United vs Blacktown City Tips 


What a game we have in store as second-placed Manly United take on third-placed Blacktown City. After a NPL NSW season full of twists and turns, the two sides missed out on top-spot in the league by a hair, with City a point behind Sydney Olympic, while United finished in second due to their inferior goal difference. Now, the pair will target victory in this one as they look to show which is the better side.

Head to Head


City won both of the matches between the two sides this season. City beat their opponents 3-1 at home, but more impressive was their 6-1 hammering of their opponents on the road in early July. Both sides will look at recent results between the pair, with the visiting side full of confidence. 

Manly United Form 


United have won their last three league matches in a row, beating Rockdale Ilinden, Sydney United and Mount Druitt Rangers. With a decent run of form behind them, United will be confident they can claim a fourth win in a row to see their season extended further. 

While United have home advantage in this one, they cannot take anything for granted. They know that their opponents will not fear them, meaning this contest will likely turn into quite an open battle if the scores remain level for long. United need to try to hit the ground running and put pressure on the visiting side, although we do believe they will struggle against a City side in good form. 

Blacktown City Form 


A disappointing 2-0 loss to first-placed Sydney Olympic saw City miss out on the chance to secure top-spot in the league. However, such is the form of this City side is that they will not fear having to play extra games as they try to prove themselves. Three wins in a row before their loss to Olympic came over Wollongong Wolves, Sutherland Sharks and next opponents Manly United, with two of these on the road. 

City have looked very strong all season, and their away record shows they are no slouches on the road. Five wins in 11 is a decent record, while their massive 6-1 win over United last time they visited Cromer Park will have many jostling to back the away side to win this clash.
