Must-win game for Mills at foot of league

in Football

Matters at the foot of the Canada Life Premier League take centre stage this Saturday.

Union Mills hopes of extending their stay in the top-flight to another season are hanging by a thread.

The Millers currently trail third-bottom Ramsey and safety by eight points with only half a dozen games left to run. This weekend Mills face already-relegated Ayre in the latter’s last game of the CLPL season.

Mills need to win to make sure they are still within striking distance ahead of two pivotal games against Colby.

The Garey Mooar outfit won the reverse fixture 8-0, but will need to stay focused against a Ayre side wanting to finish with a bang.

Ramsey will do well to put any more points between themselves and the Millers as they travel to Laxey.

Colby, who sit on 13 points with the northerners, also face a tough task as they welcome a Corinthians side looking to bounce back from two successive defeats to the Station Fields.

There’s a mid-table battle on the cards at Blackberry Lane as DHSOB welcome St John’s.

Elsewhere, St George’s face St Mary’s in their last home game of the season with the champions receiving the CLPL trophy at the match’s conclusion.

Douglas Athletic host Rushen in the latter’s penultimate game of the league season in what should be a win for the latter.

l Douglas Royal can move within three points of promotion if they win at RYCOB in Division Two’s sole game.
