What’s up with the St Albans Saints?

Ever since the calendar turned the page to June, the Saints have not been able to pick up a single point.

The title-chasing Saints have lost all three games this month, including a 2-1 defeat at Churchill Reserve on Sunday to a Whittlesea Ranges side that is struggling in second last on the ladder.

Despite the three-game losing streak, St Albans is perched in the top two, just two off ladder leader Werribee City, which has endured its own struggles in recent times.

Is the glass half full or half empty for St Albans? The Saints’ form is dire, but they are still well and truly in the promotion mix.

The Kruni Razov-coached Saints will be desperate to get out of their slump when they visit Moreland City, a side that is lurking in the rear vision mirror, on Saturday.

In top tier NPL, Green Gully fought back from a goal down at half-time to settle for a 2-2 draw away to Dandenong City.

Teeboy Kamara found the equaliser for the Cavaliers in the 82nd minute, while Matthew Fletcher scored in the first half.

Melbourne Knights could not repeat their FFA Cup heroics from mid-week, going down 4-0 to Bentleigh Greens.

The Knights went down to 10 men when scores were level after Joseph Franjic was red carded.
