THE fight for the top two spots in the Lautoka Football Association local league is expected to go down to the wire with the competition entering round ten on Sunday.

Many clubs will be playing two matches on Sunday.
Leaders Press will take on Service Sports and United Sangam. FC Education will face Vitogo Youth and FC Yalandi.
LFA Shalendra Prasad said the clubs would need to play two more matches before they could nominate their teams for the 2012 Kriz Sign National Club Championship zonal playoff next month.
He said postponement prolonged the local league competition.
"Right now Press, FC Education and Rifle Range are in the race for the two top positions," Prasad said.
"A lot will be at stake this Sunday. Slip ups by the top placed clubs could see the other teams come into contention."

The LFA local league will kick-off at Nadovu Park at 9am.
