Pacific team news and form: Suspension troubles hit Merriman

Juan Quintana saw the red card in the 53rd minute of the game against HFX Wanderers. This means coach James Merriman won’t be able to help his team at York Lions Stadium. However, the Canadian manager does have plenty of decent players to pick from ahead of the kick-off, and we are sure our York United vs Pacific predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup: Melvin (GK), Zanatta, Meilleur-Giguere, Amedume, Sellouf, Dada-Luke, Young, Lajeunesse, Lamothe, Heard & Tircoveanu

Player to watch: Josh Heard

We trust Josh Heard will do what’s necessary to help his team succeed at York Lions Stadium. He is the team captain and as such, he has to lead his colleagues to victory in the most difficult moments.

Captain Heard will be a starter this week

Josh did miss one game for Pacific in 2024, but we are convinced he will not only be a starter for coach Josh Wolff in the match at York Lions Stadium, but he will also help prove our York United vs Pacific predictions correct. After all, he does have one goal this season.
