Last time they met:

Port Melbourne 2-2 South Melbourne

South Melbourne comes into this game on the back of its Dockerty Cup triumph over Oakleigh Cannons, and the side will be hoping to carry on its momentum.

The hosts’ league form has been stuttering of late though, unable to capitalise on slip ups by Bentleigh Greens.

A run of good form has catapulted Port Melbourne into seventh spot, remarkable considering it had gone winless in seven games prior to its win against North Geelong.

Eric Vassiliadis’ men also took a point from Bentleigh two weeks ago, meaning this will be no walk in the park for South Melbourne.

A title is on the line, and only four games remain for South Melbourne to chase the Greens to defend its crown.
