Rushen host Peel in Old Firm clash

Weekend football preview

An Old Firm clash between Rushen and Peel is the pick of the matches in this weekend's Canada Life Premier League fixtures.

Both have taken maximum points from their opening games of the campaign, with Peel chasing their first win over Rushen since a thrilling 4-3 victory in January last year.

The attacking prowess on show at Croit Lowey this weekend is in abundance.

Lee Gale and Rhys Oates continue to be the driving force in the Peel attack, while Jamie Johnston and Michael Williams have been in great form for The Spaniards.

Douglas Royal are hoping to register their first points of the season when they host a Laxey side who are aiming for a fourth win in succession and continue their fine start.

Following a pulsating 5-5 draw with Douglas Athletic last week, DHSOB welcome Corinthians to Blackberry Lane.

Three points for Liam Buckley's men would see them leapfrog Corinthians, who recovered from an opening day defeat to thrash Douglas Athletic 11-2 last time out.

Douglas Athletic travel north to the Ballacloan to face a Ramsey outfit who are yet to score a goal this season.

St Georges are favourites continue their perfect start to the season when they make the trip to Marown, who lost 4-0 at home to Laxey in their last outing.
