​Melbourne Victory is in fine form ahead of hosting Nunawading City in the PlayStation 4 NPL2 West on Saturday.

Victory is on a four-match unbeaten run as it prepares to welcome Nunawading to Epping Stadium in Round 11.

It has kept back-to-back clean sheets, following its 5-0 win over Bendigo City with a 3-0 result at Werribee City.

Victory head coach Gareth Naven said he would push his team to continue its recent run.

"I just challenge the players to keep doing the same thing," he said.

"We still keep trying to achieve, and that's going to be a challenge for our group moving forward. Can they produce consistent performances, week in, week out? I'd say that's my message to the group.

"Can we once again be consistent in our focus and performance? If they can maintain that and keep doing it, they'll get the rewards they want.

"I'd say that's the question I'll be asking our group this week."

Victory winger Nicholas Sette, 16, scored a brace against Werribee to take his tally to three goals this season.

Pierce Waring, who was also on the scoresheet, and Aleksandar Stanisavljevic have each netted three times.

Striker George Howard has struck a team-high four times for Victory, which has risen to fourth on the table.

Nunawading is eighth in the PS4 NPL2 East with two wins in nine matches.

The clubs last met during the 2015 season, with Victory claiming a 5-2 win.

Victory members receive free entry to all PS4 NPL2 West home games this season. For non-members, tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for concession, with kids under 15 free.
