NFD PREVIEW - WEEK 28

BLACK LEOPARDS v MAGESI FC

A Limpopo derby to start the weekend sees two sides hungry for the 3 points for different reasons. The draw for Lidoda Duvha against Royal Eagles last time out elevated Leopards to 2nd place on the log and in pole position for a place in the Playoffs. Magesi escaped from the relegation zone for the 1st time in 18 weeks after their win at home over All Stars in midweek. However, the NFD rookies are far from safe and a win over their city rivals will go some way to surviving what has been a torrid season for Magesi.

NFD PREVIEW - WEEK 26

CT ALL STARS v UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA

Revenge for All Stars will be sweet in relieving the pressure of relegation for the home side having lost 1 – 2 to Tuks in the capital in round one and are looking almost safe from relegation worries themselves. Neither side have been in particularly great form of late with the Cape side winless in their last six outings, while Tuks have won just once in their last six matches.

BLACK LEOPARDS v AMAZULU FC
