Clubs brace for clashes

2019-11-06 06:00

The football double-header at Botshabelo’s Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium featuring four clubs campaigning in the Free State’s ABC Motsepe League will be a huge attraction for fans on Saturday (09/11).

These fixtures are sanctioned by the South African Football Association.

The first match of the double-header will see Bloemfontein Young Tigers taking on Super Eagles at 13:00.

The second match of the day is between De Gene­ral and Mphatlalatsane United at 15:00.

De General, Tigers and Eagles are among the potential title challengers.

The Tigers side has a tough task against the Bethlehem-based Eagles team, which is unbeaten in the league, along with the Central University of Tech­nology.

The Eagles side will fight to retain its clean record in this eagerly awaited fixture which could see a twist in the championship contest.

A victory for Eagles will extend the team’s unbeaten run to seven and propel it to the second position on the log.

A win for Tigers will see the side claim the third position on the log.

The Tigers side is currently in fourth position, with Eagles in the third following a 4 – 1 hammering by Harmony in a mid-week fixture played in Bethlehem on Wednesday (30/10).

De General from Botshabelo has great potential to consolidate its current second position with a win over Mphatlalatsane, the visiting side.

The team has gone five matches without a loss since the 0 – 1 defeat against log leaders Mangaung Unite in the opening league fixture of the season in September.

CUT, in fifth place, will be gunning to stretch its un­beaten record to eight in a derby against Questus on Friday (08/11) at the CUT sports complex.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
