This game has been building up since the first round of leg three.
Somerset Sharks V Northern Rangers in NPL1
Both teams have had great years and been able to shake all contenders off apart from each other. The Rangers hold the spoon over the Sharks this year beating them 5-1 with Somerset playing with 9 men then beating them 3-2 at Ranger land.
Somerset have been dominant in front of goals this year scoring a massive 87 goals to date and on the other hand the Rangers have had the best defence only letting 21 past the keeper so this has a classic game written all over it.
Ground conditions may play factor tomorrow as the rain has not eased for 12 hours and looks to continue well into today(Friday). The Sharks have kept of the main pitch to make sure it is playable Saturday. The Rangers are a very controlled team and love the quick one-two triangle work and this may default their system if the ground is bad.
Marshall Pooley has gone from the "ROCK" in the sticks to the general on the feild, He has had an outstanding year as the standalone striker and will need to be watched very closely by the ever capable Elliot Stewart.
The one thing i do admire with the Rangers set up is their midfield. Sometimes i am n awe watching their quick one-two triangle work and the ever so rough midfield of Somerset will need to close this down to stop the penetration to the forward line.
Somerset have rotated a few players this year and with every one availiable for selection will have Coach Casey Eaves watering at the mouth on who he can selecct, After seeing both teams named last night it is great to see both clubs have NOT stacked thier sides to try and get across the line.
This could be the first ever premiership for the Sharks NPL1 side or another great ride for the Rangers to wrap up another title.
Which ever way this game goes its sure to be a cracker.
