Teams geared to take the spoils

2019-04-03 06:01

The fiercely contested race to win the third-tier SAB League of the Mangaung Metro region is up for grabs given four clubs are firmly intact.

It is a four-horse race between cross-town rivals Questas, Kingston from Bloemfontein, and Lazio and Mathaithai both from Botshabelo.

Two points separate the four top-seeded clubs.

Questas top with 55 points and Lazio is second with 53 points after a leap-frog over Mathaithai in third place (52 points) and Kingston in fourth place (51 points).

Botshabelo-based Lazio claimed the second spot after emphatic wins over City Sharkers by 5 – 0 and Kingston by 1 – 0. Mathaithai temporarily lost the grip after losing by 1 – 2 to Kingston in a match played on 21 March.

As the counterparts slip-up, Questas capitalised to notch the top spot and remain in the quest to win the championship.

The table-toppers intensified their title-winning prospects beating Young Santos by 4 – 1 on Sunday (31/03).

The four teams have just five matches to play to secure a place at the promotion play-offs later in May.

Questas and Lazio have tough encounters against fifth-place Turfflowers and Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday (06/04).

On the same day, Kingston will clash relegation-bound Sharkers with Mathaithai taking on Santos.
