ROUND six of East Gippsland football will feature some challenging games, but also potentially some surprises.
Boisdale-Briagolong will host Orbost-Snowy Rovers, who is coming off a pair of wins which have reinvigorated its season.
The Bombers should be able to take care of the Blues, but after a stinging loss last week to Lakes Entrance, the game has been thrown wide open.
STRATFORD will face Lucknow at home, and will be under pressure to perform.
After five rounds, the Swans are winless on the bottom of the ladder.
The Magpies have been playing well, winning both of their away games so far this season, and will be attempting to bounce back from a heavy loss to Lindenow last week.
The Swans will be fighting hard once again to get their season on track.
LINDENOW will continue its strong season with a match against Paynesville.
The Gulls are sitting right underneath the ladder leader Wy Yung, but will be hoping for a close game to avoid being eclipsed by Lucknow and Lakes Entrance, who are nipping at their heels.
One wonders if they can upset the Cats at home.
WY Yung will take on Lakes Entrance in a game which could go either way.
Both teams have been in fine form so far this season, and a win at this stage would shore up a good ladder position before the mid-season break next month.
Lakes had a good win last week against a depleted Boisdale-Briagolong team, while Wy Yung came within three points of victory against Paynesville, who surprised it in the final quarter.
