Some pivotal games and we are only in round 5!
Somerset vs Laun Utd Cardigan Street 2.30pm
Both teams will go into this game confident of getting a victory and spectators should be in for a goal fest with the two worst defensive records in the league so far. Will Launy Utd get their first win? Will Chris Smith show the Sharks faithful what he’s capable of? Will the young guns get the Sharks over the line?
Ulverstone vs Rangers Valley Road 2.30pm
Top of the table clash with one team looking to prove they’re worthy and the other looking to stamp their authority as reigning champions. With three of their more experienced players out this week, Ulverstone will be relying on some younger players to get the job done. After a slow start, Rangers are now hitting their straps after a solid win against the Knights last week. The game is at Valley Road due to the NTCA and Showgrounds being unavailable.
Riverside vs Burnie Windsor Park 2.30pm
Riverside have flown under the radar thus far and, although some results have been less than convincing, they are sitting third and are poised to make a move to the top of the ladder. Burnie stand in their way however, and they will be looking to get some confidence back after consecutive losses to Knights and Ulverstone. If they are to contend for the title this year then this is a must win game for United.
Devonport vs Prospect Valley Road 6.30pm
Strikers and Knights, under lights! It should be a good spectacle especially with the possibility of the Ulverstone and Rangers squads filling the wet area. Devonport has had 2 weeks to think about their unexpected loss to Somerset and I am sure they will be looking to erase that with a good win over Prospect. The strikers will have their hands full however, with a Knights side looking to bounce back after losing to Rangers last week. A loss to either side will put a serious dent in their title aspirations.
Launceston City - Bye
