D-Day as clubs fight for semifinal spots


It’s crunch time for the ABC Motsepe League teams on Wednesday as some will know if they going through to the semifinals of the national playoffs and most will be going home.

The final matches of the group stages will take place at the Vaal University of Technology grounds starting at 10:00.

Mpumalanga United will open the proceedings against Umvoti in a Group A match.

A win or draw for Umvoti will see them through to the semifinals while a win with a big score for United can see them top of the group and subsequently qualify for the top four.

Polokwane City Rovers and Pretoria Callies will lock horns at 12:30 in what is viewed as the match of the day in Group C.

Rovers were the favourites given the quality they have in their team but lost the first match of the playoffs. Callies on the other hand only need a draw to go top of the table and go through to the semis. Rovers can still finish top of the log if they win by at least a 3-0 score margin.

Meanwhile, Mikhado and Mangaung Unite will square off in the last match of the day at 15:00. Both teams will need a big score margin win to stand a chance of qualifying as the second best placed team.
