WHILE Sale City is clear on top of the North Gippsland football ladder, the next five teams are involved in fight for positions.
Teams in second to sixth positions are on four wins.
Sale City is two wins clear of the competition after comprehensively defeated premier Rosedale.
Woodside moved to second position on percentage after a gutsy win over Glengarry, while in-form Churchill slipped into third after defeating Yarram on the Demons’ home turf.
Losses to Rosedale and Yarram relegated them to fourth and fifth respectively.
Heyfield and Cowwarr have shown some recent form and a place in the top five beckons if they win on Saturday.
WOODSIDE will welcome Heyfield for what should be the game of the round.
Both teams come off good wins and either could win on the day.
For Woodside, it’s a chance to consolidate second position, while Heyfield can move into the top five.
On the day, funds will be raised for the Footprints Foundation, which assists women with breast cancer.
YARRAM will travel to Stephenson Park to meet Sale City.
The ladder leading Bulldogs appear unbreakable at the moment and it’s hard to see them losing to the Demons, who are coming off a loss.
Before its loss to Churchill, Yarram had shown some good form, but it may not be enough to defeat the Bulldogs.
GLENGARRY will host Rosedale with both teams desperate for a win.
Some injury concerns have troubled Rosedale over the past few weeks, losing three on the trot.
Glengarry isn’t winning games, but is kicking good scores each week.
CHURCHILL will be looking for a fourth consecutive win when it hosts Cowwarr.
The Saints will be looking for their third victory in a row and a possible place in the top five.
IN another clash between sides needing a morale-boosting win, Traralgon-Tyers will host Gormandale.
The Bombers and Tigers have had disappointing seasons so far, currently sitting in eighth and 10th on the table respectively.
With 11 home and away games remaining, there’s still time for both teams to turn their season around.
