Notes

At the end of 1985/1986 season all the results of the last day were suspended and the matches replayed with
the number of match fixing guilty clubs were fined to start the
following season with -6 points.Vardar Skoplje won the championship.Allegations were founded on the abnormal scores as one of these was victory of one club by seven goals to one away.There has been match in which the club needed to win to avoid relegation pending on the other scores.They were losing 2-0 near the end of the match and started scoring the goal after goal to win 3-2 with obvious non-playing of the opponents.
