Premier Division relegation play-off: The Run In

The latest Premier Division results look to have given Gibraltar United hope of avoiding a relegation play-off as Britannia & Glacis both lost. 

While Gibraltar United remain ninth after their 1-0 victory over Lynx on Sunday, they are one point away from safety.

Britannia lead the chasing pack by one point but after a 6-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester 62 and a tough run of games, they will be hoping luck is on their side in the next few weeks. 

Who will end the season in the relegation play-off spot? We take a closer look at the run-in to try to work out whether it will be Britannia, Glacis or Gibraltar United..


Britannia currently sit seventh and are one point away from both Glacis United and Gibraltar United – although they do face a daunting final three games against Lions, Europa and Lincoln Red Imps. Following their 6-0 hammering against Manchester 62 last week, they are currently favourites to fall into the relegation play-off spot. 

It’s Gibraltar United, though, who face the best fixture run-in on paper. In their final three games, Manolo Nunez Sanchez’s men take on St Joseph’s before a showdown with Angels, and then finishing their campaign against Manchester 62. After shocking many by beating Lynx on Sunday, they will be high in confidence and are capable of upsetting anyone on their day.

For Glacis, they round off their 2015/16 season with games against Lynx, St Joseph’s and a potentially decisive clash with Angels.


Conclusion

The battle for relegation is intriguingly poised as we enter the final straight. The final three fixtures on the calendar throw up some mouth-watering clashes, including Glacis taking on Lynx and Britannia’s tough treble of Lions, Europa and Lincoln Red Imps. 

 

From the three teams involved Glacis are by far the stronger side and will be expected to beat Angels. They could also possibly steal some points from Lynx or St Joseph’s. Gibraltar United will need to beat Angels and hope to provide another shock result against St Joseph’s while stealing points away from Manchester 62 will be highly unlikely after the form the Red Devils are currently on. 

Despite having the toughest set of fixtures, Britannia versus Lions could be the only game they could conjure up a result after Lions’ inconsistency this season. Gaining a result from Europa or Lincoln will be nothing less than a miracle for Jesus Romero Ramos’ men but then again, football is full of surprises.
