Richards Bay FC will be hoping the international break will not hamper their progress in the GladAfrica Championship.
The side from Richards Bay are sitting at the top of the log, having enjoyed a great run of form.
Apart from their 2-1 defeat to Chippa United in the Nedbank Cup, Simo Dladla’s charges have not lost a football match since 15 December 2020. They have been consistent in playing attractive and entertaining football in both the league and the Nedbank Cup, before they were knocked out in the quarter-finals.
Players like Khanyisa Mayo, Siyabonga Vilane, Thabani Dube and Somila Ntsundwana have carried the team with consistent performances thus far. They will also hope that the break does not derail their contuity.
The Natal Rich Boyz have won eight of their 18 league matches, scoring 21 goals. They are currently on 32 points, with the least number of defeats (2) thus far.
Dladla will be hoping his side do not choke when the league resumes in April as the race for maximum points will intensify. They will take on mid table teams like Cape Umoya United, Polokwane City and Cape Town All Stars.
