The top two teams on the table, Pelister and Drita, both lost in this round to Gostivar and Skopje respectively, but each side had already secured promotion to the First League so the defeats did not prove costly.  With the final round to be played this Tuesday, the most compelling race will be which two teams will occupy the promotion play-off spots of third and fourth place.  Three teams in Miravci, Gorno Lisiche and Skopje are competing for the two positions, so one team will miss out.  Miravci is currently in third place with 54 points while both Skopje and Gorno Lisiche have one point less.  In the final round, Miravci faces Lokomotiva on the road, Gorno Lisiche meets Makedonija Gjorce Petrov, also on the road, while Skopje hosts Korab.

Meanwhile, in the other end of the table, Vlazrimi lost heavily today away to Miravci to become the fourth relegated team to go along with Ohrid Lote, Osogovo and Belasica.  One more team will be relegated and that will come down to either Korab or Gostivar, with the former having two fewer points than the latter on the standings.  As mentioned earlier, Korab has a tough away game to Skopje while Gostivar visits relegated side Vlazrimi in the 30th and final round of the season this upcoming Tuesday.
