Weekend football preview

Another weekend is upon us and, such is the nature of this particular Manx football season, it means another weekend of unpredictable excitement. 

 

Match of the day in the Canada Life Premier League tomorrow sees St Mary’s travel to Rushen.

 

The Spaniards impressive form of late - including last week’s 3-3 stalemate with league leaders Peel in the Old Firm - has seen them climb to third place in the table, but they come up against a St Mary’s side who have title aspirations of their own this season.

 

Marys beat Corinthians by three goals to two on home soil last time out, and know that a win against Rushen could see them get back to the top of the table.

 

For that to happen though, Peel would have to draw or suffer an unlikely shock defeat to 11th place Marown.

 

Other teams challenging at the top end of the table are all expected to mainatin their pressure this weekend, with St Georges and Corinthians backed to get three points.

 

In JCK Division Two, new leaders Pulrose face what could be a tricky encounter with fourth placed Foxdale whilst RYCOB host Malew.

 

Youthie lost 4-1 to rivals Ramsey last week and will be keen to take all the points against a Malew outfit who are firmly in the promotion hunt.
