Central North SA vs Northgate
Saturday 13th January 10.30am
After a long six football-less weeks, Northgate are finally back in action for 2018. Chasing their first away win and their first back to back wins after their long-awaited victory over Audacious in December, SA Central North are the men trying to stop them.
Despite the run of defeats that followed, no-one will have forgotten the demolition job Northgate completed in their first league game. Six goals in each half saw a comprehensive performance send them top of the league at the time, and after tumbling back down Clark is keen to reverse the trend.
A full squad of 14 is available to the man who has scored both times he has faced Salvation Army outfit with Northgate and former club Kay Street. Ben Davenport returns in goal to allow Sharrock a run outfield, Steve Scott is available after his winter training period abroad, and Ali Kapasi – the away match specialist – is available once more. Josh Slade faces a late fitness test after a Christmas related injury, but the rest of the squad are the same as the previous winning 14.
