Nikao Field is set to host a nail-biting midweek matchup between hosts Nikao Sokattak and Puaikura today and tomorrow.

 

Puaikura, who fell to Tupapa last week in the men’s division, will face yet another big match tomorrow going up against another top of the table team.

Puaikura gave Tupapa a good run for their money last week and will need to play similarly or better to have any chance of beating Nikao Sokattak. Puaikura will no doubt be gunning for a win to finish in the top three.

Nikao Sokattak on the other hand are a side to be reckoned with and won’t be easily defeated.

Nikao is looking hungrier than ever to claim the Round Cup especially after a smashing win last week against Matavera.

The side will also want to win the match at any cost to keep its top place on the points table and maintain the chances of Round Cup Championship title win for the first time in nearly a decade.

This match will be played tomorrow at 5pm.

In the senior women’s division match between these two team to be played today at 5pm, Nikao Sokattak will face a massive challenge against Puaikura.

The Nikao senior women’s season has not been the best so far, but after a much improved performance in their last match against Matavera, the side could be making their way up the ladder.

Puaikura recorded an outstanding win against the division leaders Tupapa last week, and the side will be eyeing another win to maintain their chase for the title.

Without doubt, the side must have gained a huge boost after the victory against Tupapa and will be a tough team to beat.

Puaikura have kept a close eye on the top of the ladder, hoping to displace Tupapa who maintain the lead in the competition.
