Melbourne Victory and Adelaide United will come together not only in the Hyundai A-League this weekend, but also in the Foxtel National Youth League at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday morning.

The top four match-up, the last home game of the NYL season, will be a good test for a Victory side that has been in great form all season.

This weekend-s NYL clash has been shifted forward to a 10am kick-off, with the Westfield W-League also being played at Lakeside Stadium on the same day.

Last weekend, Darren Davies- young team came from behind to secure a hard-fought draw against a determined Newcastle side.

“The boys played well away against the Jets,” Davies said.

“We had a fairly young squad and a number of our train-on players played, which was great for them. “

Down 2-0 at half-time, two second half goals from Anthony Proia saw the points from the clash shared.

“We didn-t have any overage players last week whatsoever, so that was great for the young boys. We got off to a slow start but in fairness to the boys they were fantastic in the second half. They came back and showed real character.”

Davies said his side-s football department was determined to continue playing their younger players and giving them as much game time as possible with a busy few months ahead, with Hyundai A-League and AFC Champions League commitments for the senior side.

“It is a hectic schedule ahead for everybody at the club, so it is important we get some game time into the boys that haven-t been playing recently. This is their opportunity to show their skills and put their hand up for selection in the first team.”
