Tonight sees one of the biggest games of the season with a clash between title rivals Entertainers and the Murray. A narrow win for the 'tainers over the Diamonds coupled with the Murray dropping points to the Greenhills has saw a massive swing in points in the title race, leaving the Entertainers a point clear with a game in hand. The Murray will have their backs against the wall in this one, knowing that if they are to claim their first ever title, nothing less than a win is required. The Entertainers will have the comfort of knowing they still have a game in hand are are a healthy five points ahead of the Hustlers, however they will be craving the win which would effectively be a knock-out blow to the Murray. This one is really is anyone's call, with both teams having recorded heavy wins over each other in the RB cup, and having drawn in the league early.
The Hustlers will be watching on with keen eyes, hoping the Murray can do them a favour and blow the title race wide open again with a win. However they'll need to ensure they gain maximum points from their match against the Tower before they start a run of three tough fixtures, including their own clash with the Murray.
A big win over the Baptists last week saw Club 72 increase their lead in fourth to five points, however they face a much stiffer challenge this week with an away tie to the Greenhills. The 'hills currently lie someways back in sixth, however they have proved they can be a match for anyone so far this season having had positive results against the top three so far this season.
An 8-6 defeat to the Entertainers last week has seen the Diamonds slip five points behind Club 72 in the race for fourth, however they'll be hoping they can get back to winning ways when they visit Langlands. Davie Bonner's team, however, are coming off one of their best ever results in a massive 10-4 away victory in the Tower and will no doubt be full of confidence going into this one.
The Hunters are sitting clear in seventh spot one point ahead of the chasing pack for a top half finish. They'll be looking to continue putting pressure on the teams below with a win away to the struggling Baptists.
Just one point behind in eighth, the Top Guns face a tricky test against the Cuesters. Last time out Andy Mason's side narrowly won the fixture 8-6, and all signs point to this being another close match.
The Aces fought to a draw against the Hunters last week but will be looking to go one better tomorrow with a victory at home to the Shooters. The three teams immediately above them could all be viewed as second favourites in their respective matches, and the Aces will be hoping by Tuesday night they have leap-frogged them into tenth.
Full fixtures as follows:
Entertainers - Murray
Greenhills - Club 72
