On the charge: Gaborone United PIC: PHATSIMO KAPENG

Gaborone United (GU) will look to stretch their Botswana Premier League (BPL) lead this weekend when they face Police XI at the Lobatse Sports Complex.

GU are enjoying time at the summit of the log, but are level on points with rivals, Township Rollers. It is not an entirely comfortable stay for the former champions and after this weekend, GU would have played two more games than the defending champions, Jwaneng Galaxy. The reigning champions are having a second consecutive BPL weekend off as they continue to focus on the CAF Champions League group stages' adventure. Pontsho Moloi would be aware that three points and a game better than Galaxy is not a safe spot. Three wins in as many games for GU would have the Jungle Kings worried. Police XI are still in cub mode early in the season, as they find themselves in the 10th spot. The cops have struggled for constituency this season and failed to win in the last four games. The Jungle Kings have found the net just eight times this season and they face the league's best defence that has conceded only on three occasions this season.
