CRUCIAL CONTESTS: Golden City and Eaglehawk face big games on Sunday at Spring Gully and Strathfieldsaye respectively.

In division one it's teams in the bottom half of the ladder against rivals in the top half.

Golden City will be on the rebound from defeat when it plays Spring Gully on the Reds' turf at Stanley Avenue from 3pm.

After winning the Knockout Cup final, City is yet to score a point in the championship race.

The task will not be easy against the second-placed Spring Gully which scored points against Eaglehawk, Colts United and Epsom.

Sam Walker struck two goals and Joel Bish added another in Gully's latest win against Epsom.

The Spring Gully women’s team has won two of three contests and is second on the ladder.

Golden City is third in the title race.

Leader in the division one men's title race, Strathdale heads to Epsom for an earlier kick-off of 1pm on pitch five.

Strathdale has scored nine goals and conceded just one across its hat-trick of wins.

Epsom kicked off its campaign with a 3-2 win against Colts United, but was defeated the past two rounds.

Playing at home for the first time in the championship, the Scorpions will have to improve dramatically to be any chance of taking the points.

It's fourth against fifth as the Blues take on Epsom in the women's match from 1pm on the synthetic pitch.

Colts United takes on Eaglehawk at Strathfieldsaye from 3pm.

Second-last in the title race, United's solitary point was against Spring Gully.

Colts went down 2-1 in last Saturday night's home game against Strathdale.

Eaglehawk is third on the ladder and determined to follow up its win against City.

The ladder-leading Colts United should be too strong for the winless Eaglehawk in the women's match from 1pm at Strathfieldsaye.
