Top four battle

IT'S do or die in the final round of the Skipper Cup competition.

With teams gunning for the playoff positions, only the winning teams will be on the safe end of the rope after Saturday's thrillers.

Defending champion, Nadroga are the minor premier recipient for this season, topping the table with 48 points.

Naitasiri is second with 38 points followed by Nadi, 34, Suva, 32, Northland, 31 and Namosi 29.

The highlanders, Nadi, Northland, Suva and Namosi all have chances of joining Nadroga in the top four.

Naitasiri looked set to finish second but a win over Tailevu this weekend would confirm a home semi-final.

Nadi will need to beat neighbours Lautoka to be safe while a win for Suva guarantees a playoff spot.

Northland will need to work hard and beat Nadroga at home while Namosi should win with a bonus-point to leapfrog Suva and Northland to join Nadi, Naitasiri and Nadroga in the top four.

Meanwhile, at the bottom of the table, Lautoka and Macuata are in the red zone. If Lautoka loses to Nadi and Macuata fails against Tavua, the Sugar City side will face the promotion relegation match, unless if they miraculously beat the inform Nadi side.

Likewise, the story for Macuata, they will find the tough going against home team, Tavua at Garvey Park this weekend. A win for Tavua would be a fashionable way to end the season.
