Sebastopol Vikings will face Fawkner Soccer Club in round two of Football Federation Victoria’s men’s state league playoff series in what coach Corey Smith has dubbed “the biggest game in the club’s history”. 

It is another must-win match for the Vikings in their pursuit of elevation into state league three competition. 

The Vikings moved one step closer last weekend after defeating fellow contender Lalor United, 3-2. 

The team lost its chance at automatic promotion when it gave up first position on the ladder to Point Cook after leading the state league four west competition for most of the season. 

The match will be played on Saturday afternoon on Anderson Oval at JL Murphy Reserve in Port Melbourne.
