Midfield battle could decide Village match

Devonshire Cougars v St David’s (Tonight, 9pm)

Having a few weeks off to regroup and charge some batteries, both sides will come into the match searching for some points to get back on track in the league.

While Cougars will be at home and favourites to win the match, St David’s will be trying to win their first match since their skipper, Landro Minors, passed away.

Sentimental favourites or not, it will be a stiff task getting anything out of this as the Big Cats will apply pressure at all costs as they attempt to get back in the title hunt.

Prediction: Cougars 3-0

Boulevard v PHC (Tomorrow, 9pm)

Another must win game for Boulevard who can’t afford to lose anymore ground to those close to them, although playing an in-form PHC side won’t be the simplest of tasks.

Having lost their previous match to Robin Hood and holding onto the first relegation spot, four points off the pace of Hood, the side need to find some punch up front to get their goals or run the risk of getting pushed off the pitch.

PHC have the league’s leading goal scorer in Antwan Russell in their ranks and he spearheads a potent attack that can put this game out of reach early if things go their way.

Look for Shakir Smith and Cecoy Robinson to play an integral part in the match to get their side the win.

Prediction: PHC 2-0

Southampton Rangers v North Village

A true test for the champions that could go either way.

While they have two games in hand on their title rivals, this means they are also short of match fitness and gameplay, having not played for almost a month.

Rangers, on the other hand, were hitting some good form before the international break and will look to continue with that.

The two respective midfields will settle the match, with the first one that gets on top likely to see their side emerge as the winners.

Prediction: 2-2

St George’s v Robin Hood

A winable game for the visitors who are coming off a good win over Boulevard over the weekend and will be keen on getting back-to-back wins.

In St George’s they will come up against a side primed a ready to make their way up the table, with the side only three points clear of the relegation zone.

With goals coming at a premium in this macth up, it could come down to the goalkeeping play of both sides as they look to assert themselves in the middle of the pack heading into the Christmas break.

Prediction: 1-1

Dandy Town v Somerset Trojans

Although the side are clear of the relegation zone, Somerset must continue on with their philosophy until the break in order to avoid a let down.

Enterprising play and no surrender defending has the side sitting comfortably in the table, doing better than what a lot of people thought they would do.

In Dandy Town, however, they will come up against a side looking to keep up the pressure at the top of the table.

Jamel Swan is an early season player of the year, and with Heys Wolfe and Raymond Beach linking up a formidable attack, things could be very interesting in this match.

Prediction: Dandy Town 3-1
