Got Grittiness? vs. Moved Upton
One fixture leaps out: Sofa vs. Mozzoula, the top two going head-to-head, for the only time this season. They've got a comfortable lead over the rest of the pack in the standings, but as well as bragging rights, there'll be a psychological advantage for the winner, because I wouldn't be surprised at all to see these two meet in the post-season, quite possibly for all the marbles in the final round.
