'I trust in my team to beat Bolton' - Sergi Saldana on Sunday's National Futsal Series game

by Nathan Linley

Manchester will look to end 2019 on a high as they face Bolton on Sunday in the National Futsal Series.

The Blues will go into the game looking to win their third-straight match after victories over Worcester and Kent United respectively as they lie 5th in the league standings.

Four goals from Victor Delgado was enough to see the Blues get over the line against the NFS new boys in Kent. A brace from Harry Tozer and goals from Raphe Barber, Scott Thompson and Uriel Araujo saw Manchester claim all three points.

Despite Bolton missing their experienced England international Stuart Cook to a serious injury, Bolton are still performing well during their debut season in the futsal top flight.

A tightly-contested 2-1 victory against Worcester saw the Reds move five points clear of Manchester in 4th place.

Head coach Sergi Saldana spoke to and is confident that his side can get a result against their local rivals.

"It's the last game of the year and we want to finish with 3 points to face the new year in good conditions. 

"I trust in my team to beat Bolton and keep with these good results that we have had lately. 
"It's their first season in first Division they are doing pretty well. I think we have a better team but anyway, you have to see the points and until now they have 12 and we have 7 so it's an important game to get closer to them."
The Blues will face the Reds in the festive clash at the Hertfordshire Sports Village, De Havilland Campus. Kick-off at 12:10 pm.
