Leopards need more league points

 

Teams affiliated with the Motsepe Foundation Championship League only have two more chances to improve their positions on the league log standings. The two teams that will take part in the promotional playoffs and the team that will accompany Platinum City Rovers to the lower division are likely to be known after Sunday’s games. Platinum City Rovers were effectively relegated after their 1-5 defeat last Sunday at the hands of Upington City at the Mxolisi Dicky Jacobs Stadium in Upington.

Black Leopards will travel to Upington this weekend, where they will face Hungry Lions. Black Leopards must win the match at all costs to ensure safety from relegation. Although they are currently in 10th position in the standings, Lidoda duvha are not yet safe. The Thohoyandou side has managed to accumulate 34 points in their league campaign to date, four points ahead of the team in second-to-last position, Marumo Gallants. Hungry Lions have only pride at stake in the match. They sit in ninth place on the table with 36 points. Black Leopards had defeated Hungry Lions 2-1 in their first-round league match at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday, 10 December.

Baroka FC will take on JDR Stars at the Global Stadium in Lebowakgomo. Baroka and JDR Stars are closely contesting for a place in the promotional playoffs. Casric Stars will host Magesi FC at the Solomon Mahlangu Stadium in Siyabuswa. The game will be a mere formality for Magesi as they have already been promoted to the DStv Premiership Division.

Maritzburg United are awaiting Platinum City Rovers at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. The other fixtures are Orbit College FC vs Upington, NB La Masia vs Marumo Gallants, Pretoria Callies vs University of Pretoria FC, and Venda Football Club vs Milford FC.
