R18 Preview - MetroStars vs. Raiders

July 15, 2020

We preview Round 18 in the National Premier Leagues - SA competition as MetroStars host Raiders at T.K. Shutter Reserve on Friday evening.

 

MetroStars come into this game following an frustrating 0-0 draw with Para Hills Knights last Saturday afternoon.

 

Rob Saraceno's side struggled to create many chances at the Paddocks against a well organised Para Hills outfit. 

 

Raiders last weekend got an impressive victory over Adelaide Olympic. English striker Alun Webb got both goals to propel Raiders up to 4th in the table.

 

Tim Henderson is in the final week of his suspension following his red card against Adelaide Blue Eagles. Justin Davis is close to a return and may feature this week in the Reserves.
