Friday night blockbuster to take place at Swandel

Wanderers will tackle Westland United on Friday night at Swandel Park in a blockbuster that will surely decided this season's league champions.

Both Wanderers and Westlands have been neck and neck since round 7 and the standout teams this season with daylight between them and the rest of the competition.

So dominant have these clubs been that they've only dropped 5 points between them to the other three clubs in the league this season and a cracking match is anticipated.

Wanderers put their disappointing performance against Lions to bed last week with a dominant 5-1 win over Croatia and are going into this game in good form. Wanderers coach Paterson will have a full squad to choose from including Aitkin who is available after a trip overseas.

Westlands had a tough game against Lions but that could hold them in good stead in their preparations here and an extra days rest could been vital for them.

Rohan Mitchell slotted back in well on the weekend while Edmondson made a successful return from injury off the bench.

It's been 51 years since Wanderers last took out a league championship while Westlands went back to back in 2014-15 in their latest.

Wanderers are 1 point in front of Westlands as it stands so a win would seal it on the night, anything else and it will go down to the last round.

Good luck to both teams.

Sunday's game sees Steel United hosting Lions at Magill Park with the winner surely taking third spot on the ladder and a week off in the first round of the Bill Paterson Association Cup.

Steel had the bye last week but in their previous game they pushed Westlands all the way and will go into this contest with some confidence.

Laughton has been a great pick up for Steel of late, he copped and injury late in that game but should be okay after the weekend off.

Lions also went toe to toe with the Red Devils last week and will rue missed opportunities there but are playing very well at the moment without winning.

For the first time this season coach Murphy has plenty of players available and his squad is strong with a tilt at the Cup on his mind.

Steel play their ground very well but Lions may just sneak this one .
