St Joseph’s FC vs Angels FC: Match Preview

The Premier Division returns today, as sixth place St Joseph’s FC take on ninth place Angels FC.

St Joseph’s come into this game as 4/6 favourites and will be expecting to walk away with all three points today. St Joseph’s didn’t get off to the best of starts last weekend, as they only came away with a point against Lions, despite being the more dominant side. Saints looked a very strong team last season, something which they lacked last season. One player who impressed many was striker Juan Carlos Fernandez Polo, as the strikers strength and skill troubled the Lions defenders, and the striker was unfortunate not to grab himself a goal. 

Angels come into this game as 5/2 outsiders, and are set for another difficult game. The newly-promoted side proved last game that they won’t be pushovers though, after they lost 2-1 to a very strong Lynx side. Despite technical problems and having their full-back Pino Moreno sent off early on, there were a few positive to take from last weeks defeat. One player who did impress though was goalkeeper Juan Antonio Mateo Perez who produced a terrific display against Lynx.

The game kicks off at 20:30 at the Victoria Stadium, and if you fancy both teams to cancel each other out, the draw is currently 10/3.

Lynx 2-1 Angels: Match Report

Lynx beat 10-man Angels 2-1 in Saturday’s afternoon kick-off at the Victoria Stadium, thanks to a first half Carlos Sanchez free kick.

Goals from Juan Pablo Sastrie, and Sanchez’s free-kick winner saw Lynx win their first game of the season against an Angels side who had to play with 10 men for 80 minutes after Juan Manuel Pino Moreno saw red for a handball in the box. Cristian Mena’s penalty for Angels was not enough to take anything from the game.

The first main chance of the game fell to Lynx, but Robert Guilling fired over after being set up by Sastrie.  Lynx then went 1-0 up after 11 minutes after Pino Moreno handled in the box. The Angels defender saw red, and although Juan Mateo saved the penalty, Sastrie was on hand to finish off the rebound and put his side ahead.

It took just 13 minutes for Angels to get back into the game, courtesy of a penalty of their own. Francisco Nieto was bought down in the box by Leonardo Vela, and referee Glen Gilbert pointed to the spot for the second time. Mena stepped up and scored Angels first ever Premier Division goal.

Lynx went ahead for a second time in the 34th minute. Sanchez was fouled on the edge of the area, and his free kick flew into the top corner to make the score 2-1.

In the second half, Lynx blew a good opportunity to go 3-1 up, as Vargas’ cross found Javier Doxagarat, who could only hit the post with his effort. A combination of Mateo’s keeping and wasteful finishing meant that as the game entered its conclusion, Lynx were not home and dry.

For their first ever game in the top division, Angels were giving as good as they had, and battled hard to try and equalise, but in the end it was not to be for the new boys, as Lynx saw out the narrow victory.

Angels FC v Lynx FC preview

Today’s early kick-off sees the Premier Division new-boys Angels FC take on last seasons Rock Cup runners up Lynx FC.

Angels come into this game as underdogs and with the lack of transfer activity which has come out of the Angels camp, we don’t expect them to pull off any surprises. Angels have kept many of their squad from last season so we shall see if Kane Ndiaga & Mateo Perez can shine in the Premier as they did in the Second Division.

Lynx come into this game as favourites and will be hoping they can start the season with a win as they push for European qualification. Lynx have been very active throughout the summer period, despite losing some big players, they have managed to bring in a correct balance of pace and power. Ethan Jolley who signed on loan from Lincoln will be hoping to make his debut today and also ex-Europa midfielder Aaron Akrapovic.

We caught up with Aaron as he gave us his thoughts before today’s game, “We are feeling very confident for the first match. We worked very hard during preseason so we hope to have a good start against Angels.”
