GladAfrica: Richards Bay back to the summit


With four matches remaining in the GladAfrica Championship, Richards Bay sit atop the log standings following an exciting weekend of encounters.

The Natal Rich Boyz came from behind twice to beat AmaTuks at the Richard Bay Sports Stadium on Sunday to reclaim a two-point lead over Royal AM at the top of the table.

Action on Sunday also saw TS Sporting defeat Free State Stars 4-3 in a seven-goal thriller at Goble Park Stadium to move to into third place, while Pretoria Callies and Cape Town All Stars drew 0-0 at Bidvest Stadium.

While on Saturday, the surprise package of the second-tier Royal AM continued their good run of form as they narrowly edged Steenberg United 2-1 at the Idas Valley Ground to hold on to second spot. Sekhukhune United missed out on the chance to make up ground after they were held 0-0 at Makhulong Stadium by Uthongathi FC.

At Tsakane Stadium, Jomo Cosmos kept their promotion hopes alive while also adding more misery to bottom of the log Bizana Pondo Chiefs with a 1-0 win, while second from bottom Cape Town Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat away to Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The weekend’s action opened on Friday with Cape Umoya United defeating JDR Stars 1-0 at Parow Park.

The GladAfrica Championship will continue with a full round of matches on the midweek of Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 May.
