The Tshisaulu Dream Field will be the centre of attention tomorrow afternoon. That is where the Sasol Women’s League match between Maindis FC and Chippas United Ladies will be played.

It will be time for Chippas to exact revenge for what Maindis did to them last month. Chippas lost 0-8 to Maindis in their first-round league match at the Makhuvha Stadium.

Maindis are still to lose a league match this season. They are currently leading the pack with 24 points accumulated from the eight matches they had played to date. On the other hand, Chippas are lying in the third spot on the log, 11 points behind Maindis.

Chippas will pin their hopes on Maggie Mukhuwana, Eunice Munyai and Puo Mudimeli for goals.

The defenders of Chippas will have a tough time against the strong Maindis’ strikers, Xiluva Tshabalala, Lebohang Ramalepe and Ntombizodwa “Fish” Nhlapo.

Mountain Tigers will host Tshandama Young Stars at the Giyani Stadium. Real Mighty Girls will entertain Team Herman at the Mabalane grounds. Shayandima Morning Stars will travel to Nwamitwa village, where they will test their strength against Sisters Ladies.

Moria Sweepers wil host the Botlokwa Ladies at Moria. Mphanama Ladies will have a date with Kanatla Ladies at the Polokwane Noordelike Rugby Field. Modimolle will visit the University of Limpopo at the Oscar Mphetha Stadium. UniLim are languishing at the bottom of the log with only 4 points. They managed to win only one and registered one draw in the seven matches they had played to date.

Seven Stars will play in front of their home crowd when they host Re Tla Dira Ladies at the Ga-Malekana grounds.
