South Coast Flame will travel to face last season’s unbeaten league champions and grand finalists Fraser Park on Saturday looking to earn their first win of the campaign.
Fraser Park have been one of the form sides of the competition to date remaining unbeaten across their opening four games.
The side sit two points off the top of the table most recently defeating Hawkesbury City 4-1.
Cam Philpot has led the way for the team in terms of goalscoring netting three so far including one against Hawkesbury City.
The last time these sides met Fraser Park earned a 2-0 win with Philpot also finding the net in that one.
The Flame succumbed to their third defeat in four games going down 1-0 to Parramatta FC last Saturday.
Flame are not without injury concerns with both Daniel Lucas and Gerard Bruscino unlikely to play.
This will once again force a reshuffle in Flame’s currently misfiring frontline.
It looks to be another tricky encounter for Flame, however, two narrow defeats in a row may indicate the side are getting closer to their first victory of the season.
The under-20s had another tough night out last time around going down 4-2 to Parramatta FC. The team had some strong patches of play in this game and they will be hoping for a more balanced performance this week.
Dany Elhamra scored his second goal of the season while Jordan Wright also found the net.
The Flame may be feeling optimistic heading into this one with Fraser Park only winning one of their opening four games most recently enduring a 0-0 stalemate with Hawkesbury City.

After a week-break through Easter, the South Coast Flame Women’s team will visit Kiama Sporting Complex on Sunday to face Kiama.
Flame earned their first-ever competitive win two weeks ago defeating Fernhill 2-0 and will be looking to make it two-from-two this weekend.
Caitlin Russel will be looking to build on her impressive performance last week providing a constant threat upfront with some dynamic movement.
The Quarriers are yet to play a game this season after their match with Wollongong United was washed out.
Flame got the better of Kiama in the Bonnie Lassie Cup prevailing on penalties after a 1-1 draw during regular time so a tight game can be expected again.
