Five Games to Watch in the Central Region - 22/23 February 2020

Written by 

Dunbeth FC Yellow vs Central Boys FA U14

The title race is hotting up in the CSFA B League this weekend as the top two face off in a crucial match for both teams.

Central Boys FA have had a season to remember, sitting at the top of the table with a perfect 11 wins from 11 games. That form has seen them take a six point lead at the top ahead of their opponents this weekend, Dunbeth FC Yellow.

The Yellows have also had an impressive season so far and are still very much in the title race, despite the six point gap and the fact that they have played one game more. A win this weekend would prove themselves as genuine contenders whilst simultaneously putting pressure on Central.

It will certainly be interesting to see how this one goes, especially with other teams still looking to muscle in towards top spot.

Lenzie YC vs Stenhousemuir FC Community U15

Stenhousemuir will be hoping to pull of a terrific result by beating league leaders Lenzie at the weekend.

Lenzie have been in fine form all season, and rightfully find themselves at the top of the league with just one loss to their record. They sit five points ahead of their second placed opponents this weekend, having played two games less.

Stenhousemuir have also had a very impressive season and will feel themselves more than capable of taking points off of the league leaders. They will also be keen to avenge their 8-3 defeat to Lenzie back in October.

A defeat for Lenzie would open the door for others, such as Balloch Eastfield and West Park United White, to put pressure on the leaders and utilise their games in hand to full effect.

North Motherwell BC vs Mossend FC U15

Another top two showdown in the CSFA sees North Motherwell and Mossend battle in the D League.

Both of these sides remain undefeated in the league and you feel something has to give if the title has to be decided. Both of these teams have been in tremendous form and deservedly occupy the top two spots.

Mossend hold top spot for now, sitting four points ahead of their opponents having played two games more and if their last encounter is anything to go by, a thrilling 3-3 draw, this has all the making to be a classic.

EKFC Blue vs Wishaw WW U17

Just five points separate the top five in the CSFA U17’s A League, and the top two in the division face off this weekend.

EKFC Blue hold the top spot in the league for now, two points ahead of their opponents this weekend having played three games more. East Kilbride have only lost three games this season however and will be keen to stay at the top.

Wishaw will be encouraged by their progress this season, and find themselves in the title race based on merit. With just two defeats to their name they will be encouraged to take on the league leaders this weekend.

With the league so tight at the top, any game between those involved in the chase has more meaning. Let’s hope these two live up to the occasion and put on a great game.

Cambusnethan Talbot vs Blantyre Victoria U13

These two sit on even footing in the CLYFA A Division as far as points are concerned so a barnstorming match is expected as the top two go head-to-head.

Blantyre hold top spot for now and have a perfect record in the league, securing six wins out of six in the league. Another win here would provide a massive mental boost as they continue their march towards the league title.

Cambusnethan on the other hand will be looking to make up ground. They remain on the even footing in terms of points, but having played one game more they will be looking for a win to take the pressure off of themselves as they seek to steady the ship of their title challenge.

It will certainly be interesting to see who comes out on top in this one.
