Devonport City will probably have to beat visitors Ulverstone at home at Valley Road on Saturday at 2.30pm if they are to stay top of the Forestry Tasmania Northern Premier League.

Second-placed Prospect Knights are fancied to topple third-last Riverside Olympic and would move to the top if Devonport were to lose.

Third-placed Northern Rangers travel to Cardigan Street to take on fifth-ranked Somerset and a win for Rangers could also put them on top if Devonport and Prospect were both to lose.
