This will not come easy and they will have to make major improvements on and off the field if they hope to leave with a W.
The expectation is that they need to get better in a hurry, though they do still have time on their side to escape relegation.
Matavera, who are second on the points table, have a strengthened squad and will be hoping to climb up to that number one spot by securing three points in today’s clash.
With both sides chasing the same dream, it will definitely be a match worth watching with plenty of football thrills to keep supporters entertained.
The U-17 men’s matches will follow the junior games scheduled to kick off at 4:15pm.
