Few surprises in the Second League with Pelister and Tikvesh losing crucial points in their attempt to win promotion this season.
After leading 1:0 at halftime, Tikvesh failed to defend the lead by conceding two goals and losing at home to one its contenders for promotion, FK Skopje. Pelister was visiting last placed Belasica but only claimed a point with a goalless draw. Drita, who was the table leader entering this round, hosted one of the promotion favorites in Makedonija Gjorche Petrov in a hard fought game that ended without a goal. The fact that Drita dropped two points allowed Miravci to become the new leader in the standings as they celebrated a minimal victory over Gorno Lisice. The most convincing victory was noted by Rufeja who destroyed Vlazrimi 5:0.
