The Hampton Rovers are on the road again this Saturday when they take on St Kevins Old Boys Football Club in a season-defining match at T H King Oval in Glen Iris.
The Rovers currently occupy seventh spot on the VAFA Premier B ladder but are actually equal-third with four other clubs. A victory on Saturday could really set-up their season. However it does promise to be a tough game with the skobbers always a quality opponent, especially on their home turf and especially with the likes of former Richmond player Mark Coughlan running around for them.
Hampton are coming off a great win over the fancied Old Carey last weekend away while St Kevins had a convincing win over Old Essendon. The Rovers side remains largely unchanged with only a couple of changes.
In the corresponding game last year, it was St Kevins who snuck home by three points. They currently sit second on the ladder with five wins, one more than the Rovers. It will be a change of scenery for Saturdays game, due to St Kevins moving home base in 2010 from Righetti Oval in Kooyong to the T H King Oval on High Street in Glen Iris.
