  • The home side have only lost one of their five home games, winning three and drawing once (NPL NSW)

  • Blacktown can leapfrog their hosts in the table with a win (NPL NSW)

Head to Head


Home advantage has been very important in this battle, with the home team winning three of the last four matches. Blacktown were the winners last time out, while they have won four of the last five games between the sides. 

Rockdale Ilinden Form


Rockdale were beaten 1-0 by Manly United in their last match, with this seeing a very impressive run brought to an end. Five wins in a row helped to make up a brilliant nine match unbeaten run, seeing the home side move onto 21 points and second-place in the table. 

If Ilinden are able to get back to winning ways at the first time of asking, then they could move to the top of the table if Sydney FC U21 are to lose their game. This is motivation enough for a side that have been in great form this year. 

Blacktown City Form 


Blacktown come into this one on the back of two defeats in a row at the hands of Wollongong Wolves and Sydney Olympic. These defeats came after a five game unbeaten run, with City still hoping to battle at the top of the table by the end of the season.

With 19 points from their 11 matches, Blacktown are only two points short of Sydney FC U21 at the top, meaning a win could see City move to the top of the table if results go their way.
