WITH two rounds to play before the Gippsland League football finals, four teams are still in the running to claim the minor premiership.

As well as taking a week off to begin the finals, the incentive for finishing the home-andaway season on top of the ladder has become greater, with the minor premier to also host the second semi-final.

Maffra will host Drouin on Saturday, eager to bounce back after a 20-point loss at Moe and retain top spot.

Sale will take the long journey to Wonthaggi.

Moe can potentially end Leongatha's top three hopes when it heads to south Gippsland.

Two matches will have no consequences on the finals, with Morwell hosting Traralgon, and Bairnsdale playing at Warragul.
