Southern Football League match preview
Round 9 - Provided by SFL League Management
New Norfolk v Dodges Ferry at Boyer, 2pm Saturday
Both teams displayed strong performances in Round 8 and will be keen to grab another win tomorrow to stay in touch with the top five as the middle of the season approaches. New Norfolk had a decisive win over Sorell, winning its second game for the season, while Dodges Ferry hung on for a two-point win over Brighton.
The Eagles had a slow start to the season but if the last two games are anything to go by they have returned to the style of football they are well known for and should be able to pull off a good win over the Sharks this week.
Dodges Ferry has also been showing their ability to contest in the early rounds, playing a close game last weekend and coming close to knocking off the undefeated Lindisfarne two weeks before that.
Both teams have proved they have the potential to challenge the best and are capable of a win at home or away. These teams are sitting right next to each other on the ladder, so it’s an important win for both of them. It will be an interesting match to see who can prevail.
Claremont v Huonville at Abbotsfield Park, 2pm
This be a strong battle with the Magpies tipped to take out the points.
Lindisfarne v Hobart at Anzac Park, 2pm
It is widely tipped that Lindisfarne will remain undefeated this season after facing Hobart this weekend .
Cygnet v Sorell at Cygnet, 2pm
These teams are desperate for a win this weekend and it’s going to be interesting to see if Sorell can lift its game on the road or if Cygnet can make up for the devastating loss against Lindisfarne last week.
