CALLIES face a tough double-header when the Safa Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) SAB League fixtures resume tomorrow.
The Londt Park outfit host log-leaders Real City at Londt Parktomorrow and Showvillage United at the NU2 Stadium on Sunday. City are unbeaten in 10 starts.
Callies will be playing their first match on home ground, which was being used by the cricket section of the club. Because of their late entry into the competition, Callies have played only five matches and are way down the log, but they are not unduly worried about their position.
"We have double-headers this week and the next and next. Maximum points will see us in the top three," optimistic Callies manager, Daryl Ausmeier said.
Bay Stars, who are in fifth place with two matches in hand, play Showvillage tomorrow and Hotspurs at the NMMU Missionvale campus on Sunday.
"The boys have been hard at training in the off-season and although our matches this weekend are not easy, we are confident that we will be among the front-runners by the time we finish our catch-up games," said Stars coach Graham Harrison.
