Second-placed Taroona host League One leaders University at Kelvedon Park on Saturday in what should be an exciting top-of-the-table showdown.

University’s greater experience may tell in the end and a win could put them two points ahead of third-placed Hobart United, who face a relatively easy game away to bottom-side Southern FC at Sherburd Park on Saturday.
