Teteks and Sileks continued their quest for direct promotion after both teams noted wins in their matches today.
Thanks to a lone goal by striker Filip Petkovski, Teteks beat Miravci and increased the difference between the two teams to 8 points (38 points for Teteks as opposed to 30 points for Miravci). With this defeat, Miravci is slowly distancing itself from the top two slots.
Table leader Sileks destroyed 11 Oktomvri 4:0 with each goal scored by a different player.
Rufeja surprised Zajazi on the road to win 1:3. Both teams are in desperate need of points since each side finds itself in the relegation zone, and Rufeja did just that to notch three points as they fight to avoid relegation.

Madjari Solidarnost was better than Tiverija as they triumphed to a 1:0 win at home. The lone goal was scored after 22 minutes of play by Trajche Krstev.
