In a double header at the Sir Ignatius Kilage stadium in Lae, Morobe Mining Joint Venture Bulolo United FC take on Besta PNGFA United in the earlier clash at 1pm while the main meeting will see visitors lock horns with home team Niugini Building Supplies Tukoko University FC.
A win by Central would mean they jump into the top sport and join early leaders champions Hekari United who are on bye this weekend.
The official ladder; Hekari nine points, Central FC six, Eastern Stars four, Bulolo United four, PNGFA United three, Souths and Tukoko University yet to register a win.
The boys mostly from the Koupa area of the Central Province have had a positive appoach in their maiden year in the semi professional league and are expected to be joined by loyal supporters all the way from home who are expected to hit the highway into the city to cheer their favourite team.
While the management of the team were tight lipped about their line up for the weekend, team manager Morea Vavine said the side expect to continue thier winning form in the seven team race.
“With the ome crowd behind us, the boys should be fired up to win,” Vavine said.
Petro Souths have the hot city weather against them that has been a let down for the team especially with players used to the cold condition but coach Tim Gawot is optimistic the players should by now get used to it.
The team flies into Port Moresby today. Souths will be led by captain and national training squad member Ronald Sohuru in the front with Peter Towelo, Mante Kavoi, Mathias Apo and James Kavari.
