South Coast Flame will travel to Cook Park to face Nepean FC on Saturday night in round 15.
Flame succumbed to their third defeat in a row with a 3-1 loss to Hawkesbury City despite taking the lead in the match through Cody Waller.
The side hasn’t been able to capitalise since the 6-0 win against Western NSW in round 11.
There has been a change at the helm this week with former player and youth team coach Darren Jones announced as interim head coach until the end of the season following George Kulcsar’s departure.
Jones will be hoping to have an instant impact this weekend against a Nepean side on a winless run of four matches.
Flame was edged out 1-0 against the Mountain Men in round four but will be hoping for better fortunes this weekend.
Flame will need to break a bit of a hoodoo as they have never won at Cook Park since their inception.
South Coast welcomed back goalkeeper Nicholas Armand last weekend into the under-20s after battling illness throughout the first half of the season.
Flame are still battling injuries with no less than four players sidelined and there is likely to be a reshuffle in the backline with Kasey Kulcsar suspended this week.
The under-20s went down to Hawkesbury City 3-1 last weekend and whilst there were patches of great football, the side continues to be punished for defensive errors.
Nepean have been in red hot form having won their last five matches and they sit in third spot.
Last time out, Nepean defeated Flame 3-1.
South Coast will be looking to cause a few upsets throughout the next few weeks.
Nepean FC v South Coast Flame @ Ian McLennan Park
Saturday 12 June – 5.00pm and 7.00pm respectively.
