ALTHOUGH it is still very early in the season, the early pacesetters in the Nafa Premier League should emerge after this weekend’s doubleheader.
The log positions have been thrown into disarray after the association decided to clamp down on clubs that do not submit their results in time.
According to the rules, if a club fails to submit its results within 72 hours points are docked and a fine imposed.
Wolves, who became the log leaders after edging out Ebenezer last week, must be favoured to maintain their position when they play Ramblers on Saturday and Shamrocks on Sunday. Ramblers and the Rocks drew 1-1 in the Malabar derby last week.
Blackpool, who are officially the only unbeaten team in the league, play Stardrift and Swallows.
Their match against West Lake at Windvogel last weekend was called off because the field was not properly marked. They must be favoured to maintain their unbeaten record as both their opponents are struggling to get off the starting blocks.
Hotspurs are due to play Park United on Saturday and Helenvale on Sunday.
On current form the Spurs will struggle in both matches.
Saturday: Stardrift v Blackpool, Shamrocks v Swallows, West Lake v Saints, Ramblers v Wolves, Hotspurs v Park United, Helenvale v Bloom Callies, Glenville v Chatty, Ebenezer v Fairview Rovers.
Sunday: Blackpool v Swallows, Stardrift v West Lake, Wolves v Shamrocks, Saints v Hotspurs, Helenvale v Ramblers, Park United v Glenville, Fairview Rovers v Bloom Callies, Chatty v Ebenezer.
