The struggle for promotion and to escape the relegation axe will continue among the teams affiliated to the Limpopo Stream of the Sasol Women’s League this weekend. Most of the matches will be played on Saturday, while only one will be seen on Sunday afternoon.
Two for Joy Ladies must collect the maximum points, despite the fact that they will be playing away from home. They will undertake a journey to Nwamitwa village outside Tzaneen on Saturday to play against Sisters FC.
A draw will do Two for Joy more harm than good. The Tshirenzheni-based side is one of the close contenders for the league title. Two for Joy are currently lying in the second position on the log standings with 21 points, three behind the pace setters, Lacoste Morning Stars. Two for Joy have a match in hand.
Two for Joy are poised to kill, following last weekend’s 5-1 victory over the University of Limpopo Ladies FC. On the other hand, the Sisters’ performance has been improving with time. They are still fresh from a 2-0 win over Sealene Ladies.
Merwe United Ladies will test their strength against Lacoste Morning Stars at the Merwe Grounds in the Malamulele area. Merwe are still to win a league match to date. They will have to double their effort to stop the Stars’ goal poachers, Mususumeli Mankga and Gumani “Mphela” Mulibana. The Stars’ defenders, Musiiwa Ramaremisa and Tshisevhe Lidzebe, will be expected to keep their danger area clean.
Real Mighty Ladies will host Sealene Ladies at the Xikukwani Grounds outside Giyani. Seven Stars Ladies and Kanatla Ladies will meet at the Jane Furse Stadium in the Sekhukhune area. The match between Marumo Gallants and Mandebele Happy Fighters will be played at the Lebowakgomo Grounds.
The only match that will be played on Sunday will be between Tshandama Young Stars and The University of Limpopo Ladies FC at the Tshandama Grounds.
