Another home fixture for Maindis Ladies FC


After suffering a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies FC in their opening Hollywoodbets Super League match at the Giyani Stadium last Sunday, Maindis will enjoy the home-ground advantage again this weekend. They will host JVW FC at the same venue on Saturday.

The defeat was the second in a row at the hands of Sundowns for Maindis. Maindis had wrapped up their league activities for the 2021 season with an embarrassing 0-7 defeat at the hands of Sundowns at the same venue.

Maindis has assembled the best squad ever this season. Apart from the fact that they have acquired the services of a vastly experienced goalkeeper in Theledi Monnye, the team’s defence, which is marshalled by Xiluva Tshabalala and Kelebone Mnisi, is not easy to beat. The defenders of JVW FC will have the mammoth task to stop the strikers of Maindis, Molepo Rapatsa and Tswarelo Digaota.

The other Limpopo-based side, First Touch FC, will travel to Kimberley in the Northern Cape. Their match against Richmond United will be played at the Galeshewe Stadium. Thunderbirds Ladies will entertain Durban Ladies at the Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg. Tsunami Queens will have a date with Coal City ladies at the Goble Park Stadium in Bethlehem, Free State.

The University of Western Cape Ladies will battle for the league points against Bloemfontein Celtic at the UWC Campus Stadium. The University of Johannesburg FC will play against Vasco Da Gama in one of the three matches that will be played on Sunday. The other Sunday fixtures are Mamelodi Sundowns vs Golden Ladies and TUT FC vs City Lads FC.
