Khalid Jamil's NEUFC is tenth with 13 points from 19 matches. It has been a disappointing season for the Highlanders. However, they have occasionally churned out positive results against stronger teams on paper.
With the return of Deshorn Brown, NEUFC is favourite against SCEB. A win will take the team to 16 points but won't change its league position.
