Loaded WaiBOP United make the trip north to play Auckland City this Sunday for what will be the franchise’s final ever ASB Premiership game. With little to play for – we can’t make the play-offs and can’t be overtaken for fifth – this match will be all about sending off the franchise in style. Ex-WaiBOP United players Danyon and Reid Drake have been named in Auckland City’s squad, while Sanni Issa, who featured for Auckland City when they finished third at the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, travels as part of our squad.
