FOOTBALL - ILLAWARRA PREMIER LEAGUE

The after-effects of the Illawarra Premier League's rain-stricken start to the year will continue this week with several rescheduled fixtures.

In the first of the matches, Albion Park White Eagles travel to Crehan Park on Tuesday night to play Cringila Lions.

Park were handed a heavy 4-1 defeat by Wollongong United on Saturday and are in need of a win to keep in touch with the competition's top five.

On Thursday, South Coast United host undefeated 2012 league champions Dapto Dandaloo at Ian McLennan Park after claiming back-to-back victories on Sunday with a 3-0 win over Wollongong Olympic.

The match shapes as the first of two blockbuster fixtures for United, who then face Bulli at home on Sunday.

"We are not scared of anyone really. They are tough games because they are both good teams," South Coast coach Alan Paine said.

"We played Bulli in the preseason and we are not too worried about that."
