Match day 5 of MDUK Scottish Premiership and Championship shaped up to be a great day of football which did not disappoint.
Where else can you start but to congratulate Lothian Wolves on clinching this seasons MDUK Championship title. Wins over Tayside Dynamo and Clyde Caledonia sealed it. Dominance and comebacks seeing them win all of their 10 games so far.
Ultimately run-away winners who never gave anyone the chance to catch them with that 100%-win record, made all the more impressive that there is still 1 full league day to go. Congratulations again on back to back league titles. Could we see them challenge in the Premiership next season or will they go for 3 in a row?
Runners up is still very much a close call. Clyde Caledonia and Tayside played out a very close 1-1 draw with a goal from Kelsey Speed followed up by an equaliser from Connor Colhoun. This after Caledonia winning first game 5-0 over Riverside. These results leaving second place in the balance, Caledonia one point ahead of Tayside who have a game in hand. Both teams will be determined to pick up a medal for their efforts this season, to be decided on the final day.
Moving on to Premiership action, Just the two fixtures, Tayside Dynamo Blues put a fierce performance on against South Ayrshire Tigers, with goals all over the park from Logan Mitchelson, Eythan Galloway and Nicky Duncan. Tigers fought valiantly but Tayside proved to have too much.
Top of the table clash was to end the day as Tayside Dynamo faced Clyde Alba
Both teams go in knowing a win could see them lift the league title.
In a tense beginning Clyde Alba struck first coming out the blocks with some lovely one touch football resulting in a back-post finish from Kieran Burns set up by strike partner Connor McCole, 1-0. Just 3 minutes gone, in recent times that early a goal would see Alba go on to dominate but that was not the case this time around. Tayside responded with consistent pressure, producing some outstanding saves from Alba GK Thomas Pettigrew. However, the pressure paid off after Tayside Dynamo yellows being awarded a penalty scored coolly by Nicky Duncan. 1-1 the half time score. After some great football and a back and forth second half with chances missed at both ends, there was to be no late winner for the Dynamo. The 1-1 score line meaning Alba remain top of the table, just.
Going into the last games of the season both teams are locked on same points, with Alba top on head to head. One game each left. Both games KO at the same time. It goes right down to the wire! Alba know it’s in their hands but there is no room for error. Helicopter Sunday? Who will be MDUK Premiership winners this season?
