Southern Football League match preview
Round 20 - Provided by SFL League Management
Brighton v New Norfolk at Pontville, 2pm Saturday
This is a very important game for both teams. The Robins are looking to win at home to finish their season on a high, while New Norfolk is still battling to secure a spot in the top three.
After a slow start to the season the Eagles have fought hard to get back amongst the top teams before the finals come around. Currently New Norfolk is sharing third position on the ladder with Cygnet, so a win this weekend could give the Eagles a one-game advantage over the Port and help them get closer to another crack at the SFL title.
The Robins have been playing some great footy in the back end of this season, but currently are sitting just a couple wins outside reach of the top five. Both teams will be desperate for the win at this point of the season. They will both be fighting hard and giving it their all to secure a strong finish as we come up to the end of the season. It’ll definitely be an interesting match to watch.

Lindisfarne v Dodges Ferry at Anzac Park, 2pm
It doesn’t matter how this game turns out. The Two Blues will remain on the top of the ladder and take the 2016 minor premiership with another round still to play. The Two Blues are undefeated this season and currently sit two wins clear of Claremont while holds second position on the ladder.
Cygnet v Hobart at Cygnet, 2pm
This is the final match for the Port before the finals begin, and a very important match for the Tigers. Cygnet has secured its spot in the top four for the upcoming finals but it would be good for them to get another win this weekend - they might even lock in the top three. A win for the Tigers would put them in good stead for the upcoming match against Huonville, and go a long way to secure them in the top five and a chance in the finals in two weeks time.
