Tovey’s men, who are unbeaten so far, have collected 20 points from 10 games, the same number of matches played by Rovers.

The organised outfit from Richards Bay welcome FC AK at Mhlathuze Sport Stadium in 3.30 pm kick off on Saturday.

“I must say I was pleased with the way we played and created chances against Rovers. The result has brought us back to contention and … that is good motivation for everybody,” said Tovey.
