Derwent United can win the Southern League One title tomorrow by beating Beachside at home at Weiley Park at 2.30pm.

Win, draw or lose, Derwent have already booked a Korean restaurant in Hobart for a celebration tomorrow evening.

They will have their latest Korean import, Jeong Bin Kim, on view against Beachside after he was cleared to play.

Northern Rangers must beat sixth-placed Launceston City away at Mitsubishi Park at 2.30pm tomorrow to be sure of retaining the leadership in the Forestry Tasmania Northern Premier League.

Rangers currently lead the competition with 36 points, one ahead of second-placed Ulverstone and third-ranked Devonport City.

A win for Rangers will, in fact, give them the title.
