Oakleigh Cannons also won their last game as they brushed Altona Magic aside in a 3-0 win. This victory saw the Cannons get back to winning ways following two draws and a loss. Now, they face a huge test as they travel to take on the Sharks this weekend. 

  • The Sharks have won their last three games in a row (NPL Victoria) 
  • The home side have only lost two of their eight home games (W5, D1) (NPL Victoria)
  • Oakleigh Cannons sit a lace and two points above the Sharks in the table (NPL Victoria)
  • The Cannons have won six of their eight away games (D1, L1) (NPL Victoria)

Head to Head


The last game between the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in March 2022. Last season, home advantage was very important, with both sides winning in front of their own fans. However, both games were very tight, with victory by a single goal in each. Interestingly, there have been six draws in the last 10 games between the sides. 

Port Melbourne Form


The Sharks have won their last three games in a row, beating Dandenong Thunder, Easter Lions and Green Gully. The nine points they have picked up means they have been able to build a comfortable seven point gap between themselves and Green Gully in fourth. 

The Sharks will target this one as a game that could prove pivotal to their season. A defeat here means they would slip five points behind their next opponents, with top spot even further away if South Melbourne win their next game. However, a win in this game would see them move above the Cannons and claim second-place in the table. 

Oakleigh Cannons Form 


The Cannons won their last game, hammering Altona Magic 3-0 in a very assured performance. Victory here enabled the Cannons to create a seven point gap between themselves and Green Gully in fourth, with this constituting their 12th win of the season. 

Victory in this game could see the Cannons close the gap between themselves and South Melbourne at the top to a single point if they win this game and the top side lose. However, this will likely prove to be one of the toughest games of the season for the Canons as they travel to take on a side in fine form.

Verdict

The two sides are incredibly well-matched, with the pair looking to edge closer to South Melbourne at the top of the table. The bookies favour the home side in this one, which is shown through the available odds, but we do not think either will be able to take all three points in a contest that will likely be incredibly tight. We are therefore backing a draw.
