The teams campaigning in the Free State stream of the ABC Motsepe League go into recess with mixed results after pulsating league matches played last Saturday (09/12).

Current leaders All Stars remain at the top despite their 3 – 1 drubbing by local rival Dikwena United.

Stars’ defeat in the local derby was the second after 13 matches played thus far.

Warriors moved up the table to claim fifth position following their emphatic win over their local rivals.

While Stars donated points, title-challengers Mangaung Unite, Bloemfontein Young Tigers and Bloemfontein Celtic failed to capitalise to narrow the gap. Tigers shared the spoil with Celtic at a derby played in Bloemfontein, while Unite suffered a crucial 1 – 0 loss to Harmony FC in Welkom.

Mangaung remains in second position on 25 points – four points adrift the leaders, Stars. Tigers and Celtic are in the third and fourth position with 24 points, respectively.

The top five seeded clubs are vying to win the Free State and qualify for this year’s national promotion to see them promoted to the National First Division (NFD). Last year they lost to Bethlehem’s Super Eagles, who are currently in the NFD rank.

The big movers were newcomers Kovsie, who ascended the log to claim position ten after a three-all draw with Young Masters. The University of the Free State men’s side improve gradually despite having parted ways with former coach Queen Modutoane, who helped the outfit gain promotion to the ABC Motsepe League this year.

This is Kovsie’s first term in the second-tier division.
