They haven’t got near the success of their A-League counterparts just yet, but Wolves coach Jacob Timpano insists Sydney FC can’t be underestimated in the NSW NPL Men’s 1.

Wollongong will meet the A-League champions NSW NPL team this weekend in another crucial encounter at Lambert Park.

The Sky Blues side, which is made up of the club’s youth league players, are ninth on the ladder heading into their fixture with the Wolves after an up-and-down start to their inaugural campaign in the NSW top flight.

However, Timpano knows better than to believe the encounter will be anything other but a challenging affair.

“They play some top shelf football,” Timpano said.

“They might lack a little bit of experience but they are by no means easy beats.

“No one is, in this competition.”

Wollongong come into the match high on confidence following a superb 2-0 victory over Rockdale City Suns last weekend.
