Down to the final round

THE minor premiers and the team to be relegated will be decided in the final round of Far North Coast premier league soccer.

Richmond Rovers lead the way after their 2-1 win over Workers on Saturday and will wrap up the title if they account for Italo Stars.

Second-placed Workers need to win at Byron Bay while hoping Rovers slip up.

Lennox Head will host Stars tonight in the final catch-up game of a disrupted season.

With neither side in semi-final contention or fearing relegation, only pride will be on the line.

The match kicks off at 8pm.
