It will be a semi-final of sorts between top tier Tornado and bottom placed KC Budo. The two teams will be facing off in a derby where any result makes significant impact to not only their current standings but also possible promotion and relegation respectively.
With one foot already in the exit door, KC Budo's hopes of remaining in Division will be greatly concretized should they win their encounter against the Tornado side. There is a one-point difference between them and close counterparts Nile who face off with ACC the same day.
Tornado is in a better situation, having their foot already set through promotion's door. However, they will need to put good distance between themselves and SKLPS who are still in the running for the second promotion slot. A win for the Tornado side in this encounter would also see then top the league, displacing current heads Partidar, and have a shot at the Championship title.
It will be a closely contested match between the two sides in a league that's been nothing short of excitement, with narrow margins amongst themselves. KC Budo stand more to gain from a win, requiring any edge at all, and will be banking on ACC to keep the ground level for when they face Nile later on, should things go south at home.
Regardless of the result, the King's boys will use all they have in their arsenal to prepare themselves for a do or die final that has their status in division two hanging in the balance.
