TWO teams that lost against Manco Milan in the Free State stream of the Safa ABC Motsepe League, are scrambling for the second spot.

Newcomers Milan from Sasolburg are the 2015-’16 winners and have qualified to compete for promotion to the National First Division (NFD) at the national promotion play-offs set for July.

The 2015-’16 national promotion play-offs to feature winners of the respective nine provinces are set to be staged in Mangaung in July. If the play-offs materialise, this will be the first time ever they are staged in the City of Roses.

Milan’s success can be attributed to their organisation and consistency which saw them win the ABC Motsepe League in their maiden season. Their devastating form kept them in pole finish and left their opponents to play catch-up at the time they woke up.

While the Sasolburg-based team celebrates their achievement and prepares for the tough promotion play-offs, the opponents scramble for the leftovers with others at the bottom desperate to avoid relegation. The two clubs scrambling for the second and third spot are Mangaung United (54 points, second position) and CUT (51 points, third position). CUT intensified their chances to finish as the runner-up when they narrowly beat lacklustre Bubchu United by 1-0 in a tough league encounter played at the Clive Solomon Stadium on 16 April.
