NFD PREVIEW - WEEK 30

BLACK LEOPARDS v MTHATHA BUCKS

Black Leopards play their final match of the season relaxed in the knowledge that they are safe in the Promotional Playoffs. They meet an Mthatha Bucks side who are safe from relegation, but might have challenged for honours this season had it not been for the 13 draws they played to in 29 outings.

JOMO COSMOS v UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA

NFD WRAP - WEEK 29

UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA 0 BLACK LEOPARDS 1

A late goal by Lebogang Mabotja saw Black Leopards qualify for the Promotional Playoffs for the second year in three seasons. In 2015 Lidoda Duvha were denied by Cosmos on goal difference in the Playoffs. It was a year that saw Cosmos promoted and Swallows relegated from the PSL. Tuks have won only twice in their last 10 outings now, but are safe from relegation in 10th position. Leopards kept their unbeaten record in the capital city over Tuks.

NFD PREVIEW - WEEK 29

UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA v BLACK LEOPARDS

Black Leopards have been in a Playoff position for the past 13 weeks and will want to take one step closer to the post season with a victory over a side that has won only twice in their last 9 outings. Tuks are safe from relegation which might give them the freedom to play relaxed foottball. Leopards can be sure that there will be no handover of the points today. To Leoaprds advantage is the fact that they have never lost in the capital against Tuks. The student side though could spoil the party for Lidoda Duvha.
