Hampton Rovers face their toughest challenge of the season thus far, hosting third-placed Therry Penola at Boss James Reserve on Saturday.
The Rovers, who have recorded big wins over lower-placed sides in recent weeks, currently sit on top of the ladder with a percentage of 427%, however in the next four weeks come up against teams occupying the top six positions on the table.
Therry have had just the won defeat and will be a challenge for the young Rovers side, especially with sharp-shooter Corey Bannister in the side. He has 25 goals to-date, one more than Josh McPherson who snagged seven last week.
Hampton has a good side in, with two additions to the side and it promises to be a great contest and game of the day in division one. Showers are expected on Saturday which may impact the game but won’t dampen the spirits with Ladies Day in full flight at the Boss on Saturday – see below for details.
It’s a similar story in the Reserves, with the undefeated Rovers taking on the third-placed Therry Penola, looking to keep their run going. They kick-off at 11:40am with the main game at 2pm. Live scores available via the Rovers website.
