NGFNL teams head into the home straight

WITH two weeks remaining until the North Gippsland football finals, Traralgon-Tyers United and Churchill are still battling Glengarry and Cowwarr for fourth and fifth positions.

With its loss to Glengarry making it more difficult to make the finals, Churchill will host Sale City, who is coming off its third loss of the season.

The sides have played a number of classic contests in past seasons, with tomorrow’s match expected to be no different. Both sides have plenty to play for, the Bulldogs in particular looking to regain some winning form ahead of the finals.

TRARALGON-Tyers United’s bid to make the finals could be extinguished with a loss at home to Glengarry.

Coming off a strong win over Churchill, Glengarry would be favoured to avenge its three-point loss to TTU earlier this season, when the Magpies conceded a four-goal final lead.

Despite a comfortable victory over Boisdale-Briagolong, a conceded six unanswered goals in the final term must be a concern for the Bombers.

IN other NGFNL matches tomorrow, Heyfield is favoured to defeatd Woodside at home, Gormandale must refocus on the disappointment of losing at Woodside as it hosts a Cowwarr line-up on the march, and Boisdale-Briagolong will look to carry some of its form from an impressive final term against TTU into the contest against ladder leader Rosedale.
