COLTS United tackles the unbeaten Strathdale in Saturday night's Bendigo Amateur Soccer League division one match under Strathfieldsaye's lights.

The third-placed Colts have home-pitch advantage for this clash with the in-form Blues.

Strathdale has conceded just two goals this season and been equally as impressive in attack.

Sean Boxshall and Jon Bryers have a combined tally of 16 goals for Strathdale.

Dylan Callaway and Ben Langan have been prominent goal scorers for Colts this season and will play key roles.

Spring Gully takes on Golden City at Stanley Avenue on Sunday.

The Gully scored a 4-0 win at Epsom last round.

Sam Walker has struck three goals in his past two games for Spring Gully.

Golden City is winless in the championship and faces a huge task.

Epsom play away on  Eaglehawk's turf at Truscott Avenue.

The fifth-placed Epsom and fourth-placed Eaglehawk are on the rebound from defeat to Spring Gully and Strathdale respectively in the previous round.

Eaglehawk has  the chance to be on par with third-placed Colts by winning this clash.

An Epsom victory will put the Scorpions in front of the Hawks.

Kyle Hopley’s composure down back and Sam Kerrin’s control in the midfield will be an integral part of Eaglehawk’s game.

Epsom's Tobias Geary and Brett Quin will be keen to lead their team to victory.

In the women's championship, Colts United will be aiming to chalk up their sixth victory.

Strathdale has not carried on its  form of last season and is fourth on the ladder.

The Blues have two wins in five matches.

Power forward and equal leader in the Golden Boot award, Liz Watkins will be the key for Colts in this clash.

Former Strathdale striker Jacinta Dikkenberg will plan to lead her new club in Epsom to victory against Eaglehawk and close the gap to second-placed Spring Gully.

Dikkenberg has scored seven goals in five appearances and leads the race for the Golden Boot with Watkins.

Young gun Mia Killick is Spring Gully’s hope of claiming the three points against Golden City on the Stanley Avenue pitch.

Killick has struck five goals this season and is a player to watch as the championship race rolls on.

Epsom will start favourite against Eaglehawk at Truscott Reserve in California Gully.
