The fight for promotion and to avoid relegation will continue among the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the ABC Motsepe League this weekend. Three of the four Vhembe-based sides, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila(TTM), Joe Maweja and Mikhado FC, will play in front of their home crowds, while Madridtas will be the travellers.
TTM must win their match against Giyani Hotspurs at the Tshifulanani Stadium on Sunday. Apart from the fact that Tshakhuma are lying in the second-last position on the log, they must win the match to restore lost pride. They lost 0-7 to Polokwane United at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium last Friday.
Giyani Hotspurs are also fighting for survival. They are currently in the third spot from the bottom of the log.
The other Vhembe-based side, Mikhado FC, will host Great North FC at the Rabali Stadium. The spirit is high in the camp of Mikhado after they beat Giyani Hotspurs 1-0 at the Giyani Stadium last Saturday.
Joe Maweja, who are languishing at the bottom of the log, will battle it out against the Molemole Academy at the Louis Trichardt Rugby Stadium tomorrow. Maweja’s defenders, Madilonga Mukwevho and Tshifhiwa Ramaphosa, are expected to keep their danger area clean.
Madridtas FC will play against Polokwane Academy in Polokwane. The combination of Lutendo Mulaudzi and Maduvha Mudologi at the Madridtas far back is likely to give the opponents’ strikers a tough time.
The Dolphins will pay a visit to Ndengeza FC at the Giyani Stadium. Baroka FC and Polokwane United will meet at the Ngoana Mahube Stadium. The match between Magezi FC and Boyne Young Tigers will be staged at the TT Cholo Stadium.
