The race to stave off relegation from the top flight will come down to the final week of competition in the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association Digicel and OBSERVER Media Group Premier Division football competition with three teams levelled on 19 points.
They will have to win if they intend to avoid the other automatic relegation spot and also the number eight play-off spot.
Ting All Saints United, FBO 2000 Villa Lions and Sugar Ridge Sap are tied as they occupy the number seven, eight and nine spots, respectively, on the 10-team standings.
All Saints, who played to a goalless draw with Hospitality Services Sea View Farm on Sunday, are favoured with the easiest of the match-ups as they will take on the already relegated A&R Smitty in their final fixture of the season on Saturday at 6 pm. A victory would lift United to 22 points.
In the other contest of interest, Sea View Farm will tackle Villa, in what is expected to be a grudge match as former Farm midfielder, Desmond “Zico” Bleau, will face his former club for the first time this season.
Villa need a victory to get to 22 points and out of automatic relegation zone, while Farm, on 22 points in the number six position, will only need a draw.
Sap will tackle neighbours and rivals LIME Old Road on Sunday as they too seek to avoid relegation.
Currently, through, both Villa and United boast negative three goal differences while Sap have a negative 15.
The fight for the runners-up spot will also conclude this weekend with Old Road and Hoppers both hunting silver medal finishes.
Hoppers, who edged Bassa 2-1 on Sunday to move onto 32 points, will take on Cool & Smooth Empire in their final contest.
Hoppers had goals coming from Tamarley “Ziggy” Thomas and Rolston “Lexi” Phoenix in Sunday’s important victory.
Old Road, on the other hand, hammered A&R Smitty 5-1 to take their tally to 32 also on Sunday.
Stephan Smith had a hat-trick, scoring in minutes 45, 54 and 87, while there was a lone strike from Zacheus Polius who netted in minute 65.
Danny Potter of Smitty gave Old Road their opening strike when he inadvertently put a cross into the back of his own net in minute 10.
Alva Samuel scored the lone goal for Smitty in the 68th minute.
