Warriors hot on Aces’ heels in the NFD



African Warriors will look to keep the pressure on National First Division log leaders Mpumalanga Black Aces when they host Witbank Spurs at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

The Free State-based side is currently in second place with 15 points, three less than Aces, but having played one game less than the leaders.

Aces on the other hand will be in search of their sixth win of the season when they welcome bottom-of-the-log side Dynamos to the Themba Senamela Stadium.

AmaZayoni are unbeaten this season, while Dynamos are experiencing opposite fortunes as they are still hunting for their first win of the campaign.

Sivutsa Stars will be looking for back-to-back wins following their convincing 5-0 win over struggling Dynamos, but will have to be wary of a backlash from Thanda Royal Zulu.

The two sides will meet at the Thulamahashe Stadium with Thanda desperate to bounce back following their 3-0 home loss to United FC over the weekend.

This will also be a battle for log positions as both sides are tied on 13 points, with Sivutsa occupying a higher spot in third place due to a superior goal difference.

United FC, who are also on 13 points, will visit Roses United at the Botshabelo Stadium, with the Bloemfontein-based side looking to end their three-match winless streak.

Jomo Cosmos will look to build a winning streak when they travel to the Makhulong Stadium to take on fellow Gauteng side FC AK.

Ezenkosi are currently occupying 8th place on the table with 11 points, but a win could see them moving from the middle of the table and into the top four.

Wednesday’s NFD fixtures will also see the Mother City divided with two Cape derbies scheduled to take place.

FC Cape Town will battle Vasco Da Gama at the NNK Rugby Stadium, while Santos will be hoping to make their experience count when they take on Milano United.

Although they are playing in the NFD for the first time, Milano are the highest ranked of the Cape sides as they are currently sitting sixth place with 12 points, the same number as Santos in 7th place.

Vasco follow in 9th place with 10 points, while FC Cape Town are in 13th place with five points, just three points away from the foot of the table.
