It will be a boring weekend for the local football lovers. Black Leopards and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), the only two NFD sides in the Limpopo Province, will play their league matches away from home.
Black Leopards will undertake a journey to Pietermaritzburg for their all-important match against Royal Eagles tomorrow afternoon. The Eagles, who missed promotion by a whisker last season, are desperate for the league points. They are in third spot from the bottom of the log. Leopards are equally hungry for the points as beating Royal Eagles will enhance their chances of winning the league title.
Leopards are in the 8th spot with 16 points, seven behind the pace setters, Highlands Park.
TTM will visit Pretoria University at the Absa Tuks Stadium in Pretoria. TTM and Pretoria University are among the hot contenders for the league title. TTM will have reason to celebrate if they manage to hold Amatuks to a draw, because the latter are not easy to beat on their home soil.
The TTM’s centre back, Carlington Nyadombo, will watch the game from the grandstand after seeing red in their game against Mbombela United two weeks ago.
The log leaders, Highlands Park, will play against Richards Bay FC at the Umhlatuze Sports Complex in Richards Bay. The other NFD weekend fixtures are: Ubuntu Cape Town vs Cape Town All Stars, Mbombela United vs Mthatha Bucks, Uthongathi FC vs Real Kings, Witbank Spurs vs Jomo Cosmos and Stellenbosch FC vs Super Eagles.
