KRFC club logo.pngIf they’re to make a serious run at the title, today is must-win for fading Kirk Ronan.  They’re six points off the league leaders and have two other clubs to jump, looking more like pretender than contender.   There February tells the tale.

2/2      home win over #7 Wellsworth
2/9      spanked at #2 Knapford Town
2/16    1-1 home draw against #3 Peel Godred
2/23    road loss to #13 Marron

This first-ever Premier season hasn’t been quite as high-scoring as Sudrics thought it would be (though certainly more goals get made here than anywhere in Europe). Kirk Ronan give up too many of late in the new reality, unless they park the bus and don’t score themselves.

The weekend before, the road 2-2 draw to #5 Crovan’s gate didn’t look so scary.   Now?   One is forced to wonder if their magic run might be over.   This wasn’t ever a team expected to contend.  In fact, they were likely the last team to get slotted as Premier instead of Championship before this inaugural season.

Match Prediction:   Neither club has momentum in their favor now, having faced meatier parts of this schedules the past month.   Kirk Ronan has looked the more inconsistent and perhaps flat-out fatigued.  Dryaw’s home loss was tough, but by just a goal.  They’ve only lost three all season.  Noob doens’t look for them to drop a second one in a row at home.

Dryaw 4-3 is the call.
