Preview

  1. Three mistakes cost Saints the game against Gibraltar United last weekend and Raul Procopio will be hoping for better luck today against a Phoenix side who have been hit by a number of injuries so early in the season. Both teams will be set out not to lose so we expect the game to end in a draw. 
  2. Bula’s start to life at Lynx is definitely not what he would have hoped for as his side as his side are yet to put a point on the board this season. Things won’t get any easier this weekend as they take on an Imps side who are playing some great football at the moment and don’t look like slowing down any time soon.
  3. This is a must win game for champions Europa who have suffered a horrible start to the season, losing their opening two games. Anything but three points will surely be worrying for new manager Jonathan Parrado whose job you’d expect to be reviewed. Glacis won’t be any pushovers either, they performed well in their draw against Phoenix so this game has a lot on the line.
  4. The Red Devils were so close and looked certain to earn their first win of the season after leading 2-0 against Lions at half-time last week but their hard work was undone by an injury time equaliser. James Adams was impressive and will be hoping for more of the same on Saturday against a side who will be hoping to build on last weeks win over Lynx. 
  5. Heading into the new matchday, it’s second vs third as Lions, who will be hoping for a better performance, take on a Gibraltar United side who a fresh off a 3-1 victory over Saints. Lions missed the attacking threat of Juanma Llaves last week and didn’t pose a big threat to the Manchester defence so we’re not expecting them to do the same this time.
