Osogovo’s adventure in the Second League lasted only one season.  After the 3:1 defeat away to Gostivar, the team from Kochani was officially relegated and will play next season in the Third League East.

Leaders Drita destroyed Tikvesh 4:0, humiliating the Kavadarci based club and moving closer to securing direct promotion to the First League.  Meanwhile, Tikvesh fell even further from reaching one of the promotion play-off places spots and is set to remain in the Second League next season.

After a surprising home defeat against Lokomotiva, Makedonija Gjorche Petrov took another step back in its aim to finish in the top four.  It was the second consecutive bad loss for Makedonija Gjorce Petrov who lost to Vlazrimi in the last round.  Second placed Pelister lost 0:2 away to Gorno Lisiche, who is now a serious contender for a promotion play-off spot.  In another game with important implications, Miravci got past Skopje to move one point behind Pelister on the table, although the club from Bitola has a game in hand as their encounter in the last round against Ohrid Lote did not take place.

A month ago, Pobeda Junior looked safe in the middle of the table, but the recent bad results, four losses in five games, have resulted in a big fall for the club who moved into the relegation zone.
