Fight for promotion continues in ABC Motsepe League


With most of the teams affiliated with the Limpopo Stream of the ABC Motsepe League left with five matches to wrap up their league programmes for the current season, the struggle for promotion and to escape the relegation axe will continue this weekend. Two matches will be played on Friday afternoon, seven on Saturday, while only one is scheduled for Sunday.

The match not to be missed will be between Vondwe XI Bullets and United Artists at the Tshifudi Stadium on Saturday. During an interview with the head coach of Bullets, Mr. Lufuno Ndou, he admitted that for his team to secure a place in the promotional playoffs at the end of the season if they fail to beat United Artists on Saturday would be almost impossible. Bullets are currently lying in the third spot on the log standings with 20 points, seven behind the pacesetters, Mpheni Defenders. United Artists must win the match to enhance their chances of escaping the relegation axe. They are perched in the second-last position with 13 points.

Musina United will enjoy the home-ground advantage in their match against Madridtas FC at the Musina Rugby Stadium. Musina did the unexpected last Saturday when they held Mpheni Defenders to a goalless draw at the Mpheni Grounds. Munaca FC will entertain Winners Park at the Makhado Show Grounds. Winners Park must win the match to restore their pride after being beaten 0-2 by Maruleng Celtic last Saturday.

Mpheni Defenders will visit Emmanuel FC at the Giyani Stadium. Maruleng Celtic will host Giyani Happy Boys at the Drakensberg Stadium outside Phalaborwa. The other fixtures are Tubatse United vs Nkowankowa Continentals, City Motors vs Tzaneen United, Eleven Fast Tigers vs Mokopane PJ Stars, Sun Rise FC vs Ditlou FC, and Mighty FC vs The Dolphins FC.
