United falls outside the top four

SALE United is outside the Gippsland Soccer League top four after a 0-0 stalemate at home against Falcons.

The Swans were replaced in the top four on goal difference by Fortuna, who scored a big win over second-placed Moe United, 2-1.

Traralgon City defeated Newborough-Yallourn United 3-1.

Third-placed Monash only trails Moe on goal difference after its 6-1 thumping of Traralgon Olympians. Ash Birrell, Ty Christy and Coen Slaughter scored two goals each.

Ladder leader Churchill United was too good for bottom-placed Tyers, winning 3-0. It came at the end of a bad week for Tyers, whose win against Monash was overturned after it was discovered the Lightning fielded an unregistered player.

THIS Sunday, Sale United will head to Churchill to play the top side.

The Swans are the only side to defeat the Rams this season and will be looking at a repeat of that result this weekend.

Also on Sunday, Fortuna will be at home against Newborough-Yallourn, Monas will host Moe, and Tyers will head to Traralgon to play City.

Falcons will host Olympians on Saturday night.
