Green Gully SC return home looking to end their losing streak in the league when they take on Port Melbourne Sharks on Saturday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 1 PM at Green Gully Reserve.

Gully were unable to build on the green shoots of the last three weeks, falling to a 3-0 defeat away to league leaders South Melbourne at Lakeside Stadium.

The boys fell behind thanks to goals from Nahuel Bonada, Andy Brennan and Marco Jankovic, and had a chance to cut the deficit late when they won a penalty.

However, they were unable to convert on either of the two occasions, with Javier Lopez saving Mohamed Adam’s first attempt – which required a retake due to encroachment – before denying Josh Hope on the second penalty attempt.

Now the focus turns to their first home game in almost a month against the sixth placed Sharks and need a win to not only curtail their winless run, but boost their finals hopes.

The Sharks come in with plenty of momentum after winning their first league game since March 9, when they thrashed Dandenong Thunder 3-0 at JL Murphy Reserve.

Emmanuel Peters continued his fine start by opening the scoring before Marc Latsis and Andrew Meserouni added one apiece in the rout last Saturday.

Port now sit two points clear of seventh placed Dandenong City in the race for finals football this season.

Peters has been on fire for Nick Marinos’ side this season, scoring four goals in nine appearances.

Gully won both meetings against the Sharks last season, with the last of those being a 3-1 victory on the road where Adolph Koudakpo scored a brace and Bonada added one in the come from behind win, following now Gully attacker Luca Tevere’s opener.
