Gap can widen

2019-03-13 06:00

Two derbies featuring four clubs vying for the SAB League title could widen the gap among the contenders.

The first derby on Friday (15/03) is between Botshabelo clubs Lazio and Mathaithai. They will face off in the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium. Kick-off is at 16:30.

The other derby on Saturday (16/03) is between Bloemfontein teams, Kingston and Questas, at the Clive Solomon Stadium. Kick-off is at 16:00.

The four teams are hot favourites to clinch the championship of the South African Football Association’s Mangaung region. Questas and Mathaithai are tied on 45 points each. The latter side is at the top due to the superior goal difference of 49 goals, with Questas at 28.

Kingston, in third place with 43 points, stands a quality chance to leap to victory – if Mathaithai faulters against Lazio. Kingston boasts a superior goal difference of 28.

Lazio, in fourth position on 41 points, is the dark horse in the hotly contested third-tier division title. Victory will see them leap-frog over Kingston if the latter blunders against Questas.
