Uni taken back to school

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport - David Can­toni

CURTIN Univer­sity Football Club suf­fered de­feat on the week­end as they trav­elled to ta­ble-top­ping Rock­ing­ham City with the home side run­ning out 3-0 win­ners over the strug­gling Uni club.

Curtin will look to bounce back this com­ing week­end as they play host to Melville City in a spe­cial Sun­day night match at Curtin Univer­sity.

The ac­tion kicks off at 1pm with the un­der 18s match, fol­lowed by the re­serves team at 3pm. The main game kicks off at 5pm and prom­ises to be a spec­ta­cle be­tween two at­tack­minded football sides.

Curtin welcome back star midfielder Ed­die Tikoft to the line-up and are hope­ful that his in­jec­tion will help guide them to a win over an up and down Melville side.

His part­ner­ship in the mid­dle with last year’s player of the sea­son Carlo Chiellini will be vi­tal if Curtin are to take three points from the clash.

Melville cus­to­dian Mirko Gr­guri­novic will also have his work cut out with Curtin’s Dilip Thapa and Khaled Sal­hah both in red-hot form. Curtin will also look to their cap­tain Kye Mid­dle­ton down the left hand side as another at­tack­ing op­tion.

Melville will be look­ing to re­bound from last week­end’s per­for­mance where they fell 53 to a strong Quinns FC at home. They will be re­liant on their lead­ing goal scor­ers Chris­tian Long and Si­mon El Chami when they take on a tra­di­tion­ally stub­born Curtin de­fence while Melville cap­tain Matthew Donlevy will also be a threat to Curtin keeper Ranjeet Sekhon’s goal.
