This Weeks Fixtures:

Chris Smith is out for Somersets game against Prospect

Somerset v Prospect Knights 2:30pm Shark Park

Both having a tough time of things at present.  Somerset will be without Chris Smith who is suspended after accumulating 5 yellow cards.  Prospect will be desperate to return to the winners list and consolidate their top 4 spot.  Prospect will be without Andy Compane who is injured and probably Chris Pickering with Work.  Should be a closer game than the ladder suggests, but no Smith will hurt Somerset.

Launceston City v Devonport 2:30pm Prospect

Launceston City are on the up with 2 wins from their last two matches, they will be full of confidence this week against Devonport, who have to win to keep touch with the leaders.  Launceston City will be thinking of finals if they win here, and from their anything can happen.  Big improvers over the last few weeks and well capable of defeating Devonport at home.  Devonport have not been a full pace since their win over Rangers in round 4, and that could be a good thing as they looked like they were starting to get some form back in their 4-0 win over Burnie and tis could be the game to get them back on track. 
Burnie's centre back Gibson will have his hands full of
Mann this weekend.

Northern Rangers v Launceston United 2:30pm NTCA
Rangers are just moving along nicely at the moment and should be too strong for Launceston.  Rangers will bring in Tenzing Anderson to left back and Adam McItyre will make way to the bench.  No other changes, but this is a tricky fixture for the league leaders, often struggling against Launceston, who seem to grow another leg when they come up against their next door neighbours.
Burnie United v Ulverstone 4:30 pm Montello
Later kick off will give the supporters at Somerset a chance to catch another game. Ulverstone should have no trouble accounting for Burnie who just can’t take a trick at the moment.  This could be another 4 or 5 goals for Brayden Mann, but Ulverstone will do well to find consistent goal scorers around Brayden or he might be their undoing later in the year if injury or suspension strikes.  I think everyone except Somerset want to see Burnie win a game this year, but unfortunately it won’t be this week.
