Two of the teams expected to feature heavily in the battle for honours this season go head-to-head in JCK Division Two this weekend.
The visitors have won three of the four games so far, whereas the Moonlighters have won two and lost two but got back to winning ways against Gymns last time out and will be hoping to use home advantage to claim the points on offer this Saturday. This should be a close affair that could go either way.
Another intriguing game could be in store at the Nivison Stadium where Onchan host RYCOB. The latter currently lie sixth some three points ahead of this weekend’s opponents, but the Os have one or two games in hand over the rest of the division. Youthie won their first game under interim manager Ruairi Poole last Saturday but this promises to be a much tougher affair.
With third-placed Braddan having a weekend off, Union Mills will move back into the top three should they claim any points at home to Gymns who are currently without a manager after Tony Sewell stepped down at the weekend.
Governor’s Athletic may be confident of claiming a second victory of the season when they welcome Douglas and District to Bemahague, while Michael United travel south to take on Malew at Clagh Vane. The fixtures kick off on Friday under the floodlights when St John’s host Michael United.
