Green Gully 1 – 2 Port Melbourne
Melbourne Knights 1 – 0 Pascoe Vale
Fifth plays fourth on Friday night as Port Melbourne and Melbourne Knights battle to assert their place in the top six, and secure finals football.
Port Melbourne has had a strong fortnight, securing a draw with ladder leaders South Melbourne, and defeating a struggling Green Gully last week.
There could be a couple of new faces in the squads, with Port Melbourne signing former Dandenong Thunder midfielder Alan Mulcahy. The Irishman will be a boost to Eric Vassiliadis’ midfield as he looks to strengthen his stocks.
Meanwhile, goalscoring phenomenon Robbie Zadworny could make his first appearance for the Knights since moving across from North Geelong Warriors.
The forward already has six goals to his name, and will prove a handful for Port Melbourne with some of the service that Knights are capable of providing.
But how Andrew Marth accommodates the striker will be telling; there could be goals, and lots of them, if Zadworny is half as deadly as he has been for the Warriors.
