After collecting the maximum league points away from home last weekend, Lacoste Morning Stars will be on the road again this weekend. The Stars from Shayandima beat Botlokwa Ladies 2-0 in their Sasol Women’s League match at the Tshitungulwane grounds last Sunday. They will undertake a journey to Giyani on Sunday. Their match against Real Mighty Ladies will be played at the Xitlhelani Stadium.
Judging from Sunday’s performance, when Real Mighty Ladies came up against Chippas United Ladies, Morning Stars will be lucky if they manage to hold their opponents to a draw. Although they lost 2-3 to Chippas, Mighty Ladies were unstoppable throughout the game.
Morning Stars are currently leading the pack, while Mighty Ladies are lying in the fifth spot on the log standings.
Chippas United Ladies will travel to Phalaborwa, where they will fight for league points against Sealene Ladies FC at the Lulekani Stadium. Chippas will pin their hopes on Lethabo Sello, Mashudu Davhana and Fhodzani Mudau for goals.
Sisters FC will have a date with Merwe United Ladies at the Bolobedu Stadium outside Tzaneen. The Vhembe derby between Tshandama Young Stars and Botlokwa Ladies will be staged at the Tshandama Grounds. Young Stars are perched in the second-last position on the log, while Botlokwa are closely contesting the league championship.
The University of Limpopo Ladies are gearing up for a tough fixture. They will undertake a journey to Seven Stars Ladies at the Mahwelereng Stadium in Mokopane. Capricorn Sports Development must beat Skimzozo FC to keep their title hopes alive. They will meet at the Seshego Stadium. Mandebele Happy Fighters will host Copper Belts at the Zebediela Grounds.
