Aces out to consolidate NFD lead



Mpumalanga Black Aces will look to extend their lead on top of the National First Division standings when they host United FC at the Themba Senamela Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

AmaZayoni are currently four points clear of second-placed Thanda Royal Zulu, but the Kwazulu-Natal side has the advantage of having one game in hand.

Thanda will look to extend their winning streak when they visit FC AK at the Makhulong Stadium on Sunday.

AmaBhubesi have won their last two matches, while FC AK are winless in their last five league outings.

Milano United will take on fellow NFD newcomers Roses United at the Botshabelo Stadium, with the Cape side looking to return to winning ways following their 2-1 loss to Blackburn Rovers.

United on the other hand will be in search of their second win over the season, but will go into this clash on a two-match losing streak.

Rovers will look to move further away from the relegation zone when they host Jomo Cosmos at the Gelvandale Stadium.

The East London-based will still be in high spirits after registering their first win of the season last weekend, a result which moved them from the danger zone to 13th place on the table.

Dynamos, who are now the only winless side in the league, will travel to the Athlone Stadium to take on an inconsistent Santos side.

The People’s Team have failed to collect maximum points in their last three matches and find themselves stuck in the middle of the table.

Elsewhere on Saturday, FC Cape Town and Sivutsa Stars will both be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s defeats when they meet at the NNK Rugby Stadium.

African Warriors will aim to return to the top three when they welcome Vasco Da Gama to the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Free State-based side have had a decent start of the season and find themselves in fourth place with 18 points, six points off the pace.

Vasco on the other hand have had a disappointing start to the season and have failed to collect maximum points in their last five matches.

Also on Sunday, Polokwane City will return to action when they take on Witbank Spurs at the Oscar Mpheta Stadium.

Spurs are currently on a three-match winning streak and another victory could see them climbing up from sixth place into the top three.
