The race for a place in the top four takes centre stage in JCK Division Two this weekend.

The game of the day is arguably at the Nivison Stadium where sixth-placed Onchan host second-placed Pulrose United . The Os have had an indifferent first half of the season so far, winning six but losing five of their opening 11 matches.

By contrast, Pully are well place near the top of the table and remain five points behind leaders RYCOB but with a game in hand. Therefore this game could prove crucial when deciding the promotion and Gold Cup places come the end of the season.

Leaders Youthie welcome Union Mills to Scoill ree Gorree and, while the northerners will certainly start as favourites, the Millers certainly have it in their locker to cause an upset on their day.

Should either of the sides above them slip up, Foxdale will be waiting in the wings ready to pounce as they welcome bottom-of-the-table overnor’s Athletic to Billy Goat Park - weather permitting of course.

Gymns are one of the form sides in Manx football at the momentum and extended their unbeaten run to four last time out when holding promotion hopefuls Ramsey to a draw.

This weekend they will start as favourites to claim the three points on offer from visitors Ayre United.

Malew have stuttered in recent weeks but should bounce back away at Michael United, while Ramsey make the long journey south to take on a resurgent Colby.
