FC Bendigo marks another first on Saturday night when it plays under the Epsom-Huntly Reserve lights.

In 10th place after 16 rounds, FC Bendigo has the opportunity to continue its climb up the ladder when it tackles the ninth-placed St Albans Saints.

A new set of match-standard lights were recently installed above the main pitch at Epsom-Huntly Reserve.

FC Bendigo goes into this week’s fixture feeling fresh after last Sunday;s match against Moreland Zebras was called off because the De Chene Reserve pitch was declared unplayable.

After playing some fantastic football lately and having their defence start to play consistently, FC Bendigo will be determined to gain the maximum points at home.

St Albans is unbeaten in five matches.

The Saints' run of two wins and three draws includes a 1-1 result against Kingston City last round.

FC Bendigo will again look to George Slefendorfas, captain Trent Waterson and the classy Matthew Breeze to set up or finish off attacking moves.

After recording some clean sheets with some solid performance in recent matches, Bendigo's defence will be keen to do so again.

The action at Epsom-Huntly kicks off at 4pm when the under-20s do battle. The seniors match starts at 6pm.
