Ross Sutherland trip to Banff is 'biggest game of the season' as Caledonia North Two's bottom two teams clash
Ross Sutherland face their biggest game of the season at Banff as defeat could see them cut adrift at the bottom of Caledonia North Two as they attempt to fight against relegation.
The Stags threw away a five-point lead in the second half to go down 26-19 against Mackie at Invergordon.
However, a losing bonus point saw Ross Sutherland reduce the deficit to one point behind Banff in seventh as the two teams prepare to face each other in Aberdeenshire.
Defeat could see Ross Sutherland as much as six points away from safety as they lie in the relegation zone.
Head coach John Mann is under no illusion the significance of the result tomorrow.
“100 per cent it is the biggest game of the season,” he said.
“We needed a result last week but between now and Christmas its a must-win game just to get off bottom and a momentum swing.
“It would ease the pressure as if we win this week and the week after we would be up to sixth and fighting for fifth.
“It is good it is such a competitive league as Caledonia North Two tends to have an obvious top half and bottom half.”
