The Jets travel to Pirate Park on Saturday afternoon for our Round 14 PS4 NPL clash against Port Adelaide Pirates. Kick-off is at 3:00pm.
As we enter the second round of Premier League fixtures Modbury and Pirates, both promoted from the State League last season, sit within two points of each other in the bottom half of the ladder. To say that this is an important match is probably an understatement and both sides will be looking for three points. A win on Saturday will certainly go a long way towards setting us on our way to a successful second half of the season.
Modbury won’t underestimate Pirates however and will do well to remember our loss to them in the season opener at Jet Park. The Jets have improved since then and have shown some good recent form which we will hope to take into this match, and the Modbury supporters will be expecting a win.
In our last league meeting in Round 1 Pirates prevailed 3-1. Tim Henderson was on the scoresheet for the Jets that evening but picked up a red card after two bookable offences.
