Green Gully SC will be looking to continue their winning streak this Friday night, when they head on the road to face local rivals Melbourne Knights.

Gully made it three wins on the bounce in all competitions with a convincing 4-0 win over St Albans Dinamo on Saturday afternoon, backing up impressive victories over Avondale and Ballarat City in the week heading into the clash at home.

Mohamed Adam continued his fine run of form with a brace – making it four goals in two games – while Jalil Regauge and youngster Shifa Ahmed found the back of the net.

The goal was Ahmed’s first at senior level, backing up his impressive cameo against the Avengers on the weekend with a brilliant performance from the first minute.

Stephen Downes’ side now sit seven points outside the top six heading into Round 13, where they face a Knights side who are only goal difference above them on the ladder.

In his first game as player-coach, Ivan Franjic led Knights to a 3-0 victory over Dandenong Thunder.

Ciaran Bramwell scored a first-half brace before Saif Sakhi rounded out the impressive win for Knights who will look to continue their turnaround in fortunes at home this week.

Both sides need a win to stay within touching distance of the top six as we head into the second-half of the season, especially after sixth-placed Port Melbourne Sharks got a huge win over seventh-placed Dandenong City last week.

Gully won the last meeting between the two sides 2-0 at home, thanks to goals from Adolph Koudakpo and Gianluca Ianucci, but haven’t won at Knights Stadium since 2018 in the league.

Kick-off is at 7:30 PM, with the Under 23s taking the field at Somers Street at 4 PM on Sunday.

The boys continued their fine season with an impressive 5-2 win over St Albans last week, maintaining their four point lead atop the ladder.

Young gun Phil Pannunzio made it six goals for the campaign with a brace against Dinamo.
