St Mary's look to extend lead at top

St John's v St Mary's preview

Canada Life Premier League leaders St Mary's play under the floodlights this evening when they travel to Mullen-y-Cloie.

They're one of only two unbeaten teams in Manx football's top division, boating a record of five wins and one draw in their opening six matches of the season.

Frank Jones and Jack McVey - who signed for Mary's from champions St George's in the summer - have scored 11 goals between them since the switch to the Bowl.

Their opponents tonight, St John's, have only played four matches, however, meaning they have a few games in hand.

They currently lie in eighth place in the table and head into tonight's clash after a 4-2 defeat to rivals Peel last weekend.

Victory for St John's would put them level on points with Corinthians and Rushen - whilst a win for the away side this evening would move them six points clear of second-placed Peel who don't play this weekend.
