Loaded WaiBOP United is back at FMG Stadium Waikato for our third of four 2015/16 ASB Premiership matches at Hamilton’s premier sports venue. After a comfortable win under the bright lights last week we now look forward to the prospect of the much stiffer test presented by a revived Waitakere United. We still sit ahead of Waitakere on the table but we need a win to give ourselves some breathing space below us as well as to keep the pressure on those teams above us. Three points will move us up to third ahead of the weekend’s fixtures. New signing, Sean Morris, is available for selection while ex-WaiBOP United players Aaron Scott, Chad Coombes and Sam O’Regan will likely feature for the visitors.
