Eagles soar to the top

2017-04-05 06:04

The Bethlehem-based outfit Super Eagles march on towards the ABC Motsepe League title, leaving potential challengers Bloemfontein Young Tigers and Bubchu United, as well as Harmony, with some work to do.

The high-flying Eagles did themselves a huge favour, claiming the Free State crown and beating Harmony 2-1 in yet another top-of-the-table clash in Bethlehem on Saturday (01/04).

The result saw them widen the gap by four points over second-placed Bubchu (53 points) and five and eight points over third- and fourth-placed Harmony (52 points) and Tigers (49 points).

Bloemfontein clubs Tigers and Bubchu are dark horses in the race, with Mangaung Unite completely out after they drew 1-1 with relegation candidates Lijaba­tho.

Eagles need three wins of the remaining four matches to wrap up the Free State’s ABC Motsepe League.

Tigers and Bubchu are compelled to win their remaining four fixtures to remain in the running for the crown.

The Bloemfontein sides hope Eagles lose all four matches. Such result will favour them.

Victory for Eagles over a ­coachless Mangaung in another decisive outing on Saturday (08/04) will bring them closer to clinching the crown.
