R19 Preview - MetroStars vs South Adel
North Eastern MetroStars host South Adelaide Panthers this Saturday at TK Shutter Reserve in Round 19 of the National Premier League - SA competition.
With four rounds remaining in the NPLSA competition, the match result between MetroStars and South Adelaide is vital for both teams for different reasons.
MetroStars currently sit in third spot on equal points as second placed Adelaide City, with a +10 goal difference, mainly due to Adelaide City's 10-0 victory over Panthers in Round 1.
The much important double chance for finishing in the top two spot is still on the line for MetroStars, with the club aiming to clinch their ninth Minor Premiership title in 20 seasons of Federation football.
Panthers currently sit six points above the relegation zone, and after a disappointing start to the season, they have since managed to win six matches so far this season.
