It’s a top four clash for the Round 12 National Premier Leagues Women’s (NPLW) Queensland Match of the Round when top two team Lions FC and third-placed Capalaba FC go head-to-head.
Lions FC are back from their bye and are looking to continue their unbeaten streak to regain top spot on the ladder.
Meanwhile, Capalaba are coming off back-to-back losses with their latest coming at the hands of current league leaders Moreton Bay United.
They will be looking to get back to winning ways against Lions, a side they are yet to beat or score against with 9-0 (Round 1, 2018) and 7-0 (Round 14, 2018) results last season.
Those results might not do Capalaba justice though, with the side just a win away from equalling their total points tally from 2018.
Lions meanwhile have one of the best defensive sides in the competition with just six goals conceded in nine games.
Lions FC v Capalaba FC
Saturday, 4 May, 7pm
Other key games:
Brisbane Roar/QAS v The Gap
It is the 2018 Grand Final re-match on Saturday night but both teams are in different positions compared to where they were in September. There is a five point gap separating the two teams with The Gap needing three points to stay within reach of the top four, while the Roar/QAS side are hoping to keep the wins coming after seeing off SWQ Thunder last round.
Logan Lightning v Souths United
With three teams on 17 points apiece including Logan, Souths are one point ahead and will be wanting maximum points from this clash to maintain their ladder position. They head into the game on a three game winning streak while Logan are looking to bounce back from a late loss to Mitchelton.
Players to watch:
Charlie Farmer (Brisbane Roar/QAS): The Junior Matilda was a nine minute hat-trick hero in Round 11, earning herself a Team of the Week nomination.
Alexandra Huynh (Souths United): The former Western Sydney Wanderer has been consistent for her side this year and will play an important role this weekend.
Tahnai Annis (Mitchelton FC): A double against Logan Lightning saw her make the Team of the Week with both strikes placed brilliantly by the forward.
