The Reds will be looking to redeem themselves after the 'Blues' obtained all 3 points in the two club's previous meeting in Round 2 of the competition.
The increment wet weather has wrecked havoc on the Sydney Olympic youth sides, with the Sydney Olympic FC Under 14's side set to play 3 catch up games due to a series of wash outs. Alternative training methods and venues were organised to prepare the 'Blues' for their upcoming encounter this Saturday, with the olympic juniors focused on maintaining a run of good form. Victories in upcoming fixtures will see the 'Blues' advance on the ladder and secure a position in the top 5. This weekend, Sydney Olympic will take on the 9th placed Sydney United FC outfit who like the 'Blues' have also obtained 5 losses in the 2012 season.
The Sydney Olympic FC Under 15's side have continued their run of good form after they shared the 3 points with the Marconi Stallions in a midweek catch up game. The 'Blues' dominated the Stallions but failed to put away their chances, as the home side resorted to a counter attacking style of football. Olympic shot-stopper Stefan Petrovski pulled off several spectacular saves to keep the score line deadlocked at 0-0. A series of wash outs will see the 'Blues' play two catch up games against Manly United and the Rockdale City Suns, with the fixtures set to be rescheduled and played in the upcoming weeks. Nevertheless, the 'Blues' will set their sights on defeating their next opponent, the 7th placed Sydney United FC outfit, who they will meet on Saturday morning at Sydney United Sports Centre.
Joy filled the air on Tuesday night, as the Sydney Olympic FC Under 16's side celebrated a 1 nil victory over the Marconi Stallions. Daniel Bonomy secured the victory for the 'Blues' , who as a result of the win have advanced two spots on the ladder into 8th position. A victory against the 6th placed Sydney United side on Saturday will provide the 'olympic juniors' with some much needed momentum, as the 'Blues' strive to secure a spot in the top 5 and participate in semi final football. The two clubs shared the spoils in their previous meeting in Round 2 of the competition, with a 1-1 score line.
The Sydney Olympic FC Under 18's side remain in a comfortable position on the ladder in 5th place, after a strong start to the season. An accumulation of injuries have hindered the Under 18's campaign with understrength performances observed in previous rounds. The recent series of washouts has also affected their preparation with alternative venues organised to keep the boys focused and on task. This Saturday the boys will meet the 9th placed Sydney United side, who they defeated in Round 2 of the competition with a 4-2 score line. The 'Blues' will aim to emulate their previous performance in order to celebrate the three points and maintain high spirits and confidence.
