Eagles faces must-win

2018-05-02 06:01

Super Eagles, the only Free State team in the National First Division League, are on the brink of relegation.

They will be relegated when they lose their final league fixture against Umthatha Bucks on Sunday (06/05) in Bethlehem.

It is a must-win for Eagles to ensure survival and guarantee that they will still be in the second highest elite league in South Africa.

They are fighting for survival with Uthongathi FC, Richards Bay and Ubuntu Cape Town.

A draw for the Free State team will still not give them any hope to avoid the dreaded relegation.

The other teams fighting relegation are equally desperate for maximum points.

Eagles are tied on 31 points with Uthongathi FC and Richards Bay.

Victory for the Bethlehem-based Eagles will propel them to position 12 or 13 on the log.

This is pending on the outcomes of matches involving the teams above them – Uthongathi FC and Richards Bay.
