FC Wantoks under the watchful eyes of player-coach Eric Komeng is leading the competition with 23 points away from City United on 18 points.

Komeng’s team will start as favourites as it has some members of Hekari United FC players in Koriak Upaiga, Daniel Joe, Calvin Bill, Roland Conn plus youngsters Reinhart Yohan and goalkeeper Dave Jose.

With seven wins from nine games, FC Wantok will be out to maintain its supremacy over their opponents.

Nothing should aslo be taken away from City United.  The City boys have Ian Yanum, Tonga Esira and former Yamaros midfielder Max Makein plus young goalkeeper Paul Wiva.

City have been training under Max Fosters leadership, who have been busy moving between two soccer pitches, PNGIPA Oval and Bisini Oval, scouting for players for the Telikom National Soccer League next season.

Other City players who are going to provide good supper include former Hekari fullback Tasola Niebo, Hugo Kamba, Mark Faso and Junior Tuka.

In the other matches, YFC Lions will prove too strong for Buria.
