Men's Super-8: Wolves hunt top spot

Warrington Wolves host Olympia on Saturday knowing that victory will take them top of men’s Super-8.

Wolves sit in second spot, two points behind North-West rivals Hawks with two matches in hand. Hawks are not in action this weekend so a win, or a draw because of Wolves’ superior goal difference, will see them head the standings. Third-place Olympia have been in good form of late with three straight wins. Victory for them would take the London side within a point of Wolves, although they will have played one match more. Throw-off at Powerleague Trafford is at 13.30.

Defending champions London GD could move up to third on goal difference if they beat Nottingham and Olympia lose to Wolves. GD have games in hand on the teams around them and have won their last two encounters. Nottingham, in seventh, have won just twice this term, both times against fellow promoted side Coventry Sharks. Throw-off at Leyton Score Centre is at 14.30 on Saturday. As part of a great double bill London GD and London Angels meet in Super-7 at 12.30.

Bottom side Coventry travel south to play Cambridge at Sporthouse on Saturday.  Sharks are still searching for their first league win of the campaign. Cambridge have been involved in thrilling clashes of late, drawing with current league leaders NEM Hawks, and GD, and losing by just a goal to Wolves. Throw-off is at 15.30 and is preceded by the Super-7 women’s match between the two sides.
