The struggle will continue among the Multichoice Diski Challenge League affiliates this weekend. The million-dollar question is whether Black Leopards will manage to rise to the occasion and register their first victory for the season when they host AmaZulu at the Thohoyandou Stadium tomorrow morning.
The young Lidoda Duvha must win the match to restore their lost pride. The last match Leopards played at the Thohoyandou Stadium was when they suffered a 0-3 defeat at the hands of Cape Town City two weeks ago.
The three points Leopards have deposited into their league account to date were accumulated in the three matches in which they played to draws.
The four Leopards’ players, Thembisani Nevhulamba, Xolani Ndlovu, Chris Matombo and Andiswa Ndawonde, who were demoted from the senior team are failing to impress in the lower division. The quartet were part of the team that lost 0-3 to Cape Town City two weeks ago. The combination of Tshepang Moremedi, Muthu Luswinga and Tiklas Thutlwa in the Leopards’ midfield has the potential to force the opponents to play with their backs against the wall.
The game is scheduled to start at 10:00
Chippa United will host Free State Stars in Port Elizabeth, and Maritzburg United will undertake a journey to Polokwane, where they will fight with Polokwane City at the Seshego Stadium. Cape Town City will host Orlando Pirates at the Cape Town Stadium.
SuperSport United will host Highlands Park at the Lucas Moripe Stadium outside Pretoria. Golden Arrows and Baroka will meet at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban and Kaizer Chiefs will meet Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest Stadium. Bloemfontein Celtic will have a date with Mamelodi Sundowns at the Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein.
