WESTON have come to the aid of fellow NNSW NPL finals contenders Edgeworth and agreed to move their game to Saturday to help the Eagles prepare for their round of 16 FFA Cup clash with Newcastle Jets.
Edgeworth and the Bears were to meet on Sunday at Jack McLaughlan Oval in round 21 but the Eagles asked to bring the game forward because of next Wednesday's knockout at the ground.
"We can now do a recovery on Sunday and do a light session on Monday and prepare," Edgeworth coach Damian Zane said.
"It's what I believe should be expected, but it doesn't have to be that way, so we are appreciative of what they have done. We know as a club how important the cup is, so it would never be a problem for us."
The Bears came through their 4-0 friendly loss to Central Coast last Friday night at Weston Park unscathed.
The hosts conceded a penalty and an own goal in the first half but held their own against the A-League club.
"You can tell they train five days a week by how sharp they were, but our boys definitely competed," Weston assistant Craig Stoker said. "They weren't out of it."
