Mikhado’s playmaker, Bornwise Molobo.
After collecting the maximum points at the expense of the pace setters, Magesi FC, whom they beat 1-0 in their ABC Motsepe League match at the Rabali Stadium last Saturday, Mikhado FC are geared to register another victory when they host Ditlou FC at the same venue tomorrow afternoon.
While Ditlou have nothing more than pride at stake in the match, Mikhado must win it at all cost.
Ditlou are currently lying in the eighth position on the log with 21 points, 16 behind the log leaders, Magesi FC. On the other hand, a victory for Mikhado will enhance their promotional chances. The team from the Nzhelele Valley are currently lying in the second spot on the log, four points behind Magesi FC.
Mikhado have a match in hand. Should they manage to win their outstanding match, Mikhado will be separated from Magesi by one point.
The likes of Bornwise Molobo, Thulani Mabizela, Rendani Thavhana and Aluwani Nedzamba are expected to keep the defence of Ditlou running for cover for the better part of the game. Ditlou’s strikers, Harry Malaka and Joseph Marumo, are some of the players Mikhado must keep an eagle’s eye on.
