Game Background
This Saturday’s match will have a huge bearing on who will be promoted to NPL1 at the end of the season. Sydney FC had a wonderful opportunity to open up a huge gap on Wanderers in the Club Championship plats weekend but let it slip as they conceded an 86th and 88th minute goal to lose to Marconi Stallions 2-1 while the Red & Black won all three grades against Mounties.
 
Promotion is based on the winner of the Club Championship which is calculated through the following weighting:
 
U18s: competition points x1
U20s: competition points x2
NPL: competition points x4
