Moment of truth for Nico, Fighters in playoff

KABELO BORANABI
Test of character: Judgment Day has arrived for Nico United and Mogoditshane Fighters to see who gets promotion to the Premier League PIC: KEOAGILE BONANG
A battle for the remaining spot in the Premiership between Mogoditshane Fighters and Nico United takes centre stage at the National Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The pair played to a 0-0 draw last weekend at the Sam Sono Stadium and are hoping for a return. 

Neither side has a pole position to secure an elite league spot. However, Majombolo have a slight advantage over the host, as a win or any draw with goals takes them through. As for Fighters, a goalless draw will do them a favour whilst a win will ensure a swift return to the elite league.  The hosts are looking up on the coach, Thaloba ‘Machine’ Nthaga’s magic to guide their return to the top flight. Nthaga has in this decade helped Letlapeng and Security Systems gain promotion and for both sides it was their maiden appearances in the elite league.  The Samba Boys have last tasted Premiership football in 2013. In their seven-year stay in First Division, Fighters have come close to promotion on two occasions but bowed out in the promotional playoff stage.

The team is boosted by the presence of

Nthaga who has won two of the promotional playoffs ties in his career.  In their camp, Fighters have a number of former Premiership players including Khumbulani Maziba. The legendary striker was in top form before the coronavirus-induced (COVID-19) break and will be hoping that his gears will be well in motion on Saturday.

Majomobolo on the other hand are led by Peter Muchina, who has been with the team since they dropped in 2017. Muchina has built a very youthful squad in their three-year stay in the second tier as they face their biggest test on Saturday afternoon.

Nico has had their most impressive season in the league and hope that the good omen carries them into the top league. Meanwhile, the First Division South playoffs will continue.

Tlokweng United are in pole position to secure their spot, as they remain unbeaten in the campaign. The team needs nothing less than four points to secure their maiden First Division spot.
