Football | National First Division

NFD leaders up the tempo



The National First Division resumed with a bang on Wednesday afternoon with 17 goals being scored in six matches as all the top sides registered wins to keep the title race tight at the top.

Log leaders Mpumalanga Black Aces kept their position on top of the table as they came back from a goal down to beat Jomo Cosmos 2-1 at the Themba Senamela Stadium.

Ezenkosi opened the scoring through Broderick Burds, but goals from Zaid Patel and Thabang Rooi handed Amazayoni maximum points to leave them with 29 points from 14 matches.

Second-placed Thanda Royal Zulu ensured that they remain within striking distance as they bounced back from a disappointing loss to beat a struggling Dynamos side 2-0 at the Richards Bay Sports Stadium.

Mlungisi Ngubane’s men are still three point adrift of Aces, but they hold the advantage of having one game in hand.

Milano United also ended their three match winless streak in style as they defeated neighbours FC Cape Town 2-0 in their midweek Cape derby.

Devon Saal and Ganief Stellenboom scored for the newly-promoted side to leave them in third place with 22 points and still with a good chance of battling it out for promotion.

Meanwhile, Santos also showed their renewed intentions of challenging for the title when they thrashed Polokwane City 4-1 at the Athlone Stadium.

Tebogo Masaole, Edwin Sitayitayi, Salmaan King and Ricardo Skippers were all on target to help the Peoples' Team move up to fifth place with 20 points.

However, there was no joy for fellow Cape side Vasco Da Gama as they were on the receiving end of a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Sivutsa Stars, while Blackburn Rovers earned valuable points with a 1-0 away win over United FC.

The match between African Warriors and Roses United was postponed to Thursday, February 21, while the clash between Witbank Spurs and FC AK could not take place as the latter failed to honour the fixture.
