TO the dismay of football fans, the ABC Motsepe League game which was expected to be a humdinger between the two local sides, SUBS and PE Stars, could not be played at the Motherwell NU 2 Stadium on Friday.

According to SAFA Eastern Cape provincial executive officer, Isaac Klaas, the Motherwell NU 2 Stadium was being used by national Police Minister Cele to launch the festive season.

Some fans still waited at the stadium, hoping that the two sides would play, but it was in vain.

Highbury FC collected three maximum league points after Butterworth FC failed to pitch up for their game, which was scheduled to be played at NMU South Campus Ground in Summerstrand.

In another local derby, Future Tigers shared a goalless draw with Peace Makers at Rosedale Stadium in Uitenhage.

The high-flying Sibanye FC continued on their winning ways after they defeated Yakha United 1-0 at Adcock Stadium in Korsten.

Amavarara FC held The Guys to a 2-2 draw at Dumpy Adams Stadium in Komani.

The game between Birmingham City FC and Tornado FC could not be played because Tornado played against Mqanduli United in the Nedbank Cup provincial finals in Mqanduli on Saturday.
