THE clash between Pefa Premier League soccer logleaders Central Acemates and Motherwell Academy at the Westbourne Oval tomorrow should be a real humdinger.
Despite the odd hiccup, Motherwell, who are in their first year in the senior league, are serious contenders for the championship.
In the first round, Acemates scored a close 1-0 victory.
Callies, who have been in scintillating form in their past two matches, scoring 15 goals with just two against, are away to Warriors at the Moregrove school field. In the first round, they sneaked home to a 2-1 win.
NMMU Madibaz, who are having a disappointing season, host unpredictable PE City at the campus tonight. In the first round, City were thumped 4-0, while in their past match, the students were at the end of a 3-0 drubbing by Callies.
WHILE the boardroom battle continues to disrupt the fixtures, Nafa sides will play several catch-up games in the Premier League this weekend.
The latest in the dispute involving Swallows, Ramblers and Ebenezer – the three clubs have not played this year – is that the Safa-Nelson Mandela Bay appeals committee has ruled in favour of Swallows, which means Ebenezer will be relegated to the First Division.
The pick of the matches tomorrow should be the Saints-Blackpool clash on the Saints field. Through their involvement in other competitions, including the Mayoral Cup where they are the finalists, Blackpool have not played for some time. In their last match, they beat defending champions and arch-rivals Hotspurs in a Nafa Mala Moodaley KO Cup competition second-round fixture.
Blackpool will be back in action on Sunday when they play Wolves on the Gelvan 3 field.
