Gauteng Sasol League weekend preview

Friday, 9 June 2017

Palace Super Falcon have been impressive lately, winning all ten of their games on the trot, scoring thirty-three goals and collecting thirty points which saw them climb up to top position on the Sasol League standings in Gauteng. The Tembisa-based outfit will take on Croesus Ladies on Saturday at the Mehlareng stadium in a quest to continue with their impressive form that has seen them as one of the favourites in a very strong Gauteng group.

This enviable run has seen the Palace team join the National Championship chasing pack, and is now four points ahead of second place Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies who are away to Soweto Fabulous F.C at the Nike Centre on Sunday afternoon (13h00).

In comparison to Falcon’s record, Masandawana have also been impressive although with a couple of draws under their name the Tshwane based-side have been impressive in front of goal with sixty-four goals under their name, and conceded just six times while collecting 26 points and they will be a stiff opponent for Soweto Fabulous side that has quite a few former Banyana Banyana internationals within their ranks.

One team that will be watching this game with huge interest is TUT-PTA who is at home to H. Zebra Force on Sunday at their home base at the TUT PTA West Campus.  The Student team from the nation’s capital occupy third spot on 24 points, just seven points behind leaders and two points behind Sundowns.

On the other end of the log, Servol FC will still be searching for that elusive win when they take on Springs Home Sweepers in Kwa-Thema on Sunday afternoon (15h00). The team from the South of Johannesburg is yet to win a game this season, with only two draws to their name will be hoping for a much-improved performance and kickstart their climb up the log standings.

VUT have a tricky away encounter on Sunday against mid-table University of Pretoria Football Club at the UP Sports campus. As the race for Sasol League National Championship qualification heats up, none of the teams in the bottom half of the league can afford to drop points, while the same can be said for those in the top half.

Other fixtures in the Gauteng province will see Nicko Taurus away to NWU Vaal Campus, while the University of Johannesburg welcome JVW at the UJ Campus Sport Complex on Sunday.
