Melbourne Knights vs St Albans Tips


Melbourne Knights were beaten 3-2 by Heidelberg United in their last game as they conceded more ground on those above them. Without a win in their last two, the Knights need to get back to picking up points if they are to edge further up the table.

St Albans were held to a 0-0 draw by Bentleigh Greens in their last match. While this did come against a Greens side that sits above them in the table, they need to find a way to turn good performances into wins and points. 

  • The Knights have lost both of their last two games (NPL Victoria) 
  • The home side have won five of their nine games in front of their own fans (NPL Victoria)
  • St Albans have not won any of their last three (D1, L2) (NPL Victoria)
  • St Albans were beaten 2-0 in the reverse of this fixture (NPL Victoria)

Head to Head


The last game between the pair ended in a 2-0 loss for St Albans. However, it is worth noting that St Albans won the two games before this, although both had been home matches for the side. The Knights have won the last two games between the pair when playing in front of their own fans. 

Melbourne Knights Form 


The Knights fell to a disappointing 3-2 loss at the hands of Heidelberg United in their last match which saw the side fall to a second loss in a row. The latest defeat constituted the 10th loss of the campaign for the Knights, and they will be looking to ensure they do not fall to their 11th loss of the season this week. 

The Knights seem to be on the cusp of returning to form as they continue to loss by a small margin, showing they are not being totally outplayed. Perhaps a win in this one could be the kick-start their season needs. 

St Albans Form 


The away side have not won a single one of their last three matches. A 0-0 draw with Bentleigh Greens put an end to a two game losing run, with a 4-0 loss to South Melbourne following a 3-0 defeat to Avondale FC. Unlike the Knights, St Albans have been outplayed in a number of their last few games as they look to move towards the top-six in the league.

Verdict

We are backing the Knights to win this one as they look to bounce back from two close defeats. Home advantage will likely play a major part in this one, with St Albans not fancied in the betting according to the odds.
