United Warriors ready to face respected Sunbury
A NEAR-full strength United Warriors will welcome a Sunbury Blues outfit buoyed by new-found competition amongst its senior ranks.
United Warriors, who had a first-round bye, will play their first game since their penalty shoot-out loss to Doon Villa in the FFA Cup.
They welcome back player-coach Blake Walker, who returns after a red card-enforced suspension.
Walker, who slots into centre back, said he was keen to finally get back out on the field.
"Doon Villa was a good warm-up game for us. I'm back at centre back so we're almost at full strength,” Walker said.
Sunbury coach Andrew Howlett will keep the same line-up that beat Bargara 5-3 last week.
"I've got 14 players fighting for 10 spots and two keepers fighting for one so we've got some healthy competition,” Howlett said.
