Current Southern Premier League leaders University host reigning champions Beachside at 2.30pm at Olinda Grove today in what could be an epic battle.

The Students are unbeaten, but Beachside go into this game off the back of a 1-0 away win over Clarence United last weekend and should be dangerous.

South Hobart should keep up the pressure on the other Victory League sides by beating Kingborough Lions United at home at South Hobart Oval at 2pm on Sunday.

South Hobart beat the Lions 4-1 in their previous meeting and not much should change this time around.
