After locking horns with Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Wednesday evening, Black Leopards will fly to Cape Town, where they will test their strength against Cape Town City in an Absa Premiership League match at the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
It remains to be seen whether Black Leopards will make City pay for what the Diski Challenge City did to the young Leopards at the Thohoyandou Stadium last month.
The Diski Lidoda Duvha were brutally walloped 0-3 in front of their supporters.
When asked about their level of readiness for the game, Leopards’ head coach, Mr Joel “The Prophet” Masutha, was quick to state that his boys were ready to absorb any amount of heat. Masutha sent a chilling warning to the club from the mother city, saying it would be a suicidal blunder for them to underestimate the Thohoyandou side.
City are in the 11th position on the log with 10 points, while Leopards are a step below with 9 points (the result of the Leopards - Kaizer Chiefs match on Wednesday evening is not included).
The defenders of City will have a mammoth task to stop the Leopards’ strikers, Themba Ndlovu, Tumelo Khutlang, Ivan Mahangwahaya and Joseph Mhlongo, while the defenders, Jean Munganga, Marks Munyai and Thivhavhudzi Ndou, are expected to keep their danger area clean from the onset to the end.
The other match that will be played on Sunday afternoon will be between Amazulu and Polokwane City at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban. Amazulu are lying at the bottom of the log, while City are one of the league title chasers.
The match not to be missed will be between Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates at the Loftus Stadium in Pretoria.
Baroka FC and Lamontville Golden Arrows will clash at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban. Kaizer Chiefs will host Chippa United at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
The other fixtures are: Free State Stars vs SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits vs Blomefontein Celtic and Maritzburg United vs Highlands Park.
