Dandenong Thunder form and stats

Dandenong Thunder have played three Npl Victoria home games so far, perhaps enough to set expectations for the season. In that case, only 2 points from these matches could be a signal of rough times ahead.

In their previous game, the manager S. Elmazi led his Dandenong to a defeat in the Npl Victoria match away at South Melbourne. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at George Andrews Reserve. The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 1-1 versus Port Melbourne.

Dandenong has scored 3 league goals at home this season, in 3 matches. Dandenong have conceded 4 in these home matches.

St. Albans Saints form and stats

St. Albans Saints are doing rather OK so far in their away games in the Npl Victoria, having played 3 games and collected 4 points (1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss).

There might be some fixture complaints from Albans as they are again playing away from home after losing on the road in their previous match, the Npl Victoria match against Port Melbourne (0-5). Ahead of that game was the 1-1 draw at home against Eastern Lions.

Albans lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-5 beating and focus on this one.

The attacking power of Albans when travelling is not overwhelming with 2 goals scored from 3 league matches away. The Albans manager K. Razov has some worries about the defense as 6 goals have been conceded in these travels.
