Blazers must show same intensity
Somerset Trojans v Dandy Town
Dandy Town will be determined to wrap up the Premier Division title at Somerset Cricket Club tonight.
Hornets require just one point but should have enough to brush aside Trojans, who have enjoyed an encouraging season in their first back in the top-flight.
Having been the model of consistency this term, it would be a fitting conclusion to the campaign should Hornets get the job done on the road.
Trojans have had a good home record this season and will do well to keep Town’s champagne on ice for a further week.
Both sides have an attacking threats to make this an explosive encounter but I expect Hornets will be celebrating hard after this one.
Prediction: Town 3-2
PHC v Boulevard
Coming off their second win of the season, Boulevard must show the same intensity against PHC at the Southampton Oval on Sunday.
They simply must win to keep alive their slim chances of survival but will be confident after beating Robin Hood last weekend.
Should Hornets lose against Trojans, then PHC will certainly be trying to win to keep the pressure on the league leaders by reducing the gap to five points with two games to go.
While both clubs need the points for various reasons, PHC should have enough quality for victory.
Prediction: PHC 2-0
Robin Hood v St George’sHood, who played last night in an FA Cup replay, won’t have much time to recover for their clash against St George’s BAA Field.
Both sides are safe from the drop and I don’t expect there to be much excitement in this one besides guessing how much extra-time the referee puts on the clock.
North Village v Southampton Rangers
North Village will use match as a springboard to their FA Cup quest, while Rangers need to get points in order to hold off St David’s in the battle for survival.
Although the game will be held at Bernard Park, Rangers may have the edge in this one given that Rams played in midweek and may rest a few players as they turn their attentions to the FA Cup.
Prediction: Village 2-1
St David’s v Devonshire CougarsSt David’s may need a win to hold onto their top-flight status, but their recent rnarrow defeat to Village may still linger in their minds and will need to be erased if they have any chance of beating Cougars at Lords.
Having just relinquished their FA Cup title, Cougars have nothing to play for and may blood some youngsters looking ahead to next season’s assault on the league title.
Prediction: Cougars 3-1
