PHC Zebras will be aiming to reclaim the top spot in the Premier Division when they meet Dandy Town at Goose Gosling Field at 9pm tonight in a rearranged match.

The defending champions are level on points with X-Roads who climbed back into first place on goal difference after a 3-3 draw with Paget Lions last month. The orginal match between PHC and Town was postponed on November 25 because of a flooded pitch at St Johnís Field. Victory for PHC would move them three points clear of X-Roads and four ahead of Robin Hood in what is looking to be a three-horse title race, with eight points separating Hood from fourth-place BAA. So tight is it in the bottom half of the table that Town, second from bottom, could climb from ninth to a third-place tie if they pull off a victory.

Town have lost four of their last five matches. Cecoy Robinson, the PHC captain, comes into the game off a hat-trick in a Friendship Trophy win over Paget last weekend. He took his tally to 12 in all competitions, with six coming in the league.
