Southern Football League match preview
Round 12 - Provided by SFL League Management
New Norfolk v Cygnet at Boyer, 2pm Saturday
New Norfolk has had two weeks off to prepare for this game at home against Cygnet, but Cygnet has had some big wins in recent weeks, making this one a tough contest.
The last game New Norfolk played was against the unbeaten Lindisfarne where the Eagles dropped off in form after three solid wins in a row. They will be looking for a return to form against Cygnet this weekend.
Round 11 saw Cygnet pull off a massive win against Brighton on the road, leaving the Port sitting in third spot on the ladder and trying to chase down the reigning premiers in the quest for a sought after home final.
Both teams have a lot to play for this weekend as they seek to improve their position on the ladder and prove they’re going to be one of the teams to beat in the second half of the season. This will be an interesting match to watch.
Claremont v Sorell at Abbotsfield Park, 2pm
Now that we have passed the middle of the season teams are beginning to get focused for a run at the final five. The reigning premiers will be sure to put up a strong effort this weekend and it will take a lot of skill and determination for Sorell to stand a chance in this game.
Huonville v Dodges Ferry at Huonville, 2pm
Both teams came home with massive wins in Round 11 and it will be a good match to see who can come through with the win again this week. Huonville has the advantage of the home ground and a higher spot on the ladder, but Dodges Ferry won’t go down without a fight.
Brighton v Hobart at Pontville, 2pm
Brighton and Hobart are both recovering from big losses so this will be a good match for them both to prove what they have to deliver for their supporters and the rest of the season.
