Sydney University will host crucial games in the NSW Super League soccer competition when they take on Central Coast Lighting in First Grade and Under 20s at No.1 Oval on Sunday.
In a congested First Grade ladder, Central Coast sit one point ahead of Sydney University on the competition ladder after seven rounds.
PCYC Parramatta head the First Grade ladder on 16 points ahead of Macarthur Rams (14), Rockdale City Suns (13), Spirit FC (13), Northern Tigers (11), Central Coast (11) and Sydney University (10).
Despite their 7th placing, the Students have only lost one match – a 1-nil defeat at the hands of Rockdale in the last round.
They started the season with a 1-all draw with FC Bossy Liverpool, accounted for Fraser Park FC 5-2, drew 2-all with St George, defeated Macarthur Rams 2-nil, drew 1-all with Mt Druitt Rangers and played a scoreless draw with Spirit FC before the Rockdale loss.
A win over Central Coast could put them within breathing distance of the top four.
Meanwhile, Sydney University Under 20s lie third on the competition ladder, with four wins, a draw and two losses.
Spirit FC lead the Under 20 competition on 21 points, with Northern Tigers (19), Sydney University (13) and Central Coast (12) making up the top four.
Sydney University Under 20s have posted 29 goals in their seven matches, starting with a 7-nil defeat of FC Bossy Liverpool in the first round.
They followed that with a 4-2 result over Fraser Park FC, a 1-all draw with St George FC, a 1-nil won over Macarthur Rams, a 6-nil win over Mt Druitt Rangers, a 5-1 loss to Spirit FC and a 6-nil win over Rockdale City Suns.
A win over Central Coast on Sunday would consolidate Sydney University’s hold on fourth place.
