All eyes will be on this titanic clash to see who comes out tops. Sundowns Ladies are at the summit – unbeaten after six matches on 18 points, three ahead of JVW, who have shown their intent to challenge the Tshwane giants for the title.
The encounter is likely to be a closely contested affair with Sundowns duo Melinda Kgadieta and Lerato Kgasago expecting an enticing contest as both sides are playing good football.
“I am looking forward to Saturday’s game. We know our weaknesses and we have embraced them together. We know our strengths and we nurture them together. I’m hoping ‘for a good day at the office’, l hope I’ll be able to score one goal,” said Kgadieta.
Kgasago added: “This weekend’s match is one huge game for both top teams on the log. It’s a top-of-the-table clash. We have to be at our very best to stay on top of the pile. These are the sort of games players really look forward to.”
