Double to Cain
Ryan Cain scored a double as Western Suburbs continued their fine run in football’s Central League this season with a win over Lower Hutt City on Saturday.
The Shane Rufercoached team secured their eighth win in 14 matches with a 2-1 victory, a result which cements them in second place on the table.
However, they are five points adrift of Miramar Rangers, who beat Olympic 4-0 in the only other Central League match to be played over the weekend.
Wests face a huge test on Saturday, taking on Wairarapa United, who sit third but with games in hand, in Masterton.
Tawa will travel to Petone, where a win is likely to confirm them at this level for another season.
