With only two points separating the top three teams, the pressure is on in Round 19.
BRFC/NTC v Logan Lightning
Cornubia Park 1
Friday, 29 June, 7:15pm
Roar looking to maintain winning streak
BRFC/NTC will be keen to continue their winning streak as they welcome Logan Lightning this weekend at Cornubia Park.
The home side has won their last six and will hope to continue their form as they take on 11th placed Logan Lightning.
Logan should bring some confidence to the game after scoring seven goals in their win against Mudgeeraba SC last weekend.
Moreton Bay United v Eastern Suburbs
Wolter Park 1
Friday, 29 June, 8:30pm
Top four position in jeopardy
It will be fourth against seventh on Friday night as Moreton Bay United takes on Eastern Suburbs at Wolter Park.
Even with a win, Moreton Bay will be unable to jump into the top three with nine points separating them and third-placed Souths United, while a loss could see them fall out of the top four.
After a draw last week against Lions FC, Eastern Suburbs will be hoping to improve on their performance and take home the three points this week.
This match could see the debut of current Golden Boot leader Meaghan McElligott, who made the switch from Gold Coast United to the Jets midweek.
SWQ Thunder FC v Mitchelton
Clive Berghofer Stadium
Saturday, 30 June, 3:00pm
Who will end their losing streak?
Both teams will be hoping to end their losing streaks as SWQ Thunder host Mitchelton on Saturday afternoon.
Bottom-of-the-table SWQ haven’t won a game since Round 10 and fell to a crushing 11-2 defeat at the hands of Gold Coast United last week.
Mitchelton have lost their last three but will hope to regain some form to remain in the top six at the end of Round 19.
Souths chase top two spot
Souths United have the chance to move into the top two this weekend if they can secure a win over Western Pride at Briggs Road Sporting Complex.
After losing their last two games, Souths will be hoping to regain their winning form against 10th place Western Pride.
The home side meanwhile have lost their last three and will need to bring their best to be in with a chance of defeating third-placed Souths United.
Lions FC v Sunshine Coast Wanderers
Lions Stadium 1
Saturday, 30 June, 6:00pm
Can Lions stay top of the table?
Top-of-the-table Lions FC will hope to return to their winning form against Sunshine Coast Wanderers this Saturday night, after taking away only one point from their draw with Eastern Suburbs last weekend.
Wanderers will bring some confidence into the game after defeating Western Pride last round, but still remain in 12th position after 18 rounds.
Lions FC will need a win to ensure they remain top of the table, with The Gap FC and Souths United only two points behind in second and third spots.
The Gap FC v Capalaba Bulldogs
Walton Bridge Reserve 1
Saturday, 30 June, 6:00pm
Top two spot at stake
The Gap FC will be hoping to continue their recent winning form when they host the Capalaba Bulldogs this weekend.
Sitting in second position on the same points as third-placed Souths, The Gap will be keen to secure the win and their top two spot.
Capalaba meanwhile come into this away game off the back of a 4-1 loss to BRFC/NTC last weekend and currently sit in ninth position after 18 rounds.
Mudgeeraba Soccer Club v Gold Coast United
Sid Bigg Park 1
Sunday, 1 July, 3:00pm
Gold Coast looking to maintain winning form
Gold Coast United will make the short trip to Mudgeeraba this Sunday off the back of two wins.
United will bring confidence into the Round 19 clash following an impressive 11-2 victory against SWQ Thunder last weekend.
Mudgeeraba fell to a 7-3 defeat last weekend to extend their losing streak to seven games and remain in 13th position.
