Four teams go into Labour Weekend protecting unbeaten starts to the Men’s National League season.
Two games stand out as fixtures likely to entertain, with their results having a significant bearing on the early title credentials of the clubs:
- Leaders Birkenhead United travel to the impressive Wellington Olympic who are third on the table, only a point behind.
- Auckland City and Napier City Rovers — both unbeaten after three rounds — meet at Kiwitea Street on Sunday, in a game.
The table is tight with a third of the programme completed, with only two points separating the top half of the table.
