Preview: Kent United vs Manchester

by Nathan Linley

The National Futsal Series is back as Manchester face Kent United at the home of Team Birmingham on Sunday.

The Blues secured their first time of the season against Worcester in November after a 10-1 win against the league's newcomers. A mature performance from Raducio King inspired the victory, with goals from Uriel Araujo, Sam Richardson, Jordan Edge, Junior Sousa, Victor Delgado and Harry Tozer sealing the three points.

Despite lying sixth in the Tier 1 standings, Manchester have the opportunity to move further up the table as they face the bottom side, who are yet to pick up any points this season.

New signing Victor Delgado has five goals from four appearances this season and is the leading goalscorer for the Blues, and will look to add to his tally if he features on Sunday.

Head coach Sergi Saldana discussed his side's first win of the season last time out and stressed the importance of his young squad.

"I think it wasn't fair to have only one point until Worcester game because I think we deserved much more. 

After this game, I think that we will be able to keep getting points and start to climb in the classification.

Sometimes we forget that we have a very young squad and most players are still in a learning process, but we are in the correct path to improve and I think we can beat Kent and win next as well".

Manchester will face Kent at the University of Wolverhampton, Walsall Campus. Kick-off at 5 pm.
