North End, Red Sox to square off

Palmerston North's two unbeaten teams will face off when North End and Red Sox-Manawatu play in the third round of the Western Premiership tomorrow.

Red Sox may have the edge in the goal-scoring department, having scored five times this season compared with North End's two 1-nil wins, but it should be an even game between the two at Skoglund Park.

The other unbeaten side in the competition, Wanganui City, are at home against a winless Palmerston North Boys' High School.

Wanganui City are coming off a 4-1 win over their cross-town rivals Wanganui Athletic and should be confident against a Boys' High team that hasn't scored a goal yet this season.

Feilding have another game against Palmerston North Marist at Timona Park.

Feilding have had a draw and a close loss this season, while Marist are improving after knocking off Team Taranaki last week and will want to keep picking up wins to give themselves a chance of returning to the Central League.

In the other game, Team Taranaki play bottom-of-the-table Wanganui Athletic in New Plymouth.

In the women's Central League, table-topping Massey are away against Marist (Wellington) and Valeron Wanderers play Seatoun at Memorial Park, both on Sunday.
