Uni taken back to school
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.
