Ballarat City is teetering dangerously close to the relegation zone with just eight games remaining in its 2018 National Premier Leagues Victoria 2 campaign.

The City boys are second last on the west division table, just three points clear of bottom side Sunshine George Cross.

The gap to eighth-placed Whittlesea Ranges is now six points after that side beat Ballarat 2-0 last weekend.

Ballarat manager Danny Gnjidic and his men return home to Morshead Park this Saturday evening for a battle with Werribee City.

The hosts are chasing their first win since early June against a visiting outfit that sits fifth on the table.

Saturday’s game will kick off at 6pm, following the under-20 clash which begins at 4pm.
