Holy Ghost coach, Oupa Kowa admits a path fraught with peril now looks smoother as his side inches closer to the Premier League promotion.

The team is now five points away from climbing to the Premier League with only four rounds of the Debswana First Division South league games to be played. Last week, Holy Ghost opened a comfortable seven points lead at the top of the league standings. But the Holy Ghost title charge faces a hurdle in Kgatleng, as they face Matebele and Mochudi Centre Chiefs. The Holy Boys will be away to the land of Bakgatla two times, while they expect a visit from a Kgatleng side once in the remaining four games.

They begin with a visit to Matebele FC at the Nest grounds at Matebeleng village tomorrow. The tie promises to produce fireworks as the hosts are just a point adrift of the promotion playoffs spot. A win for Matebele will enhance their chances of landing the number two spot. Matebele are the most prolific team in the league having scored 31 goals and has the third-best defensive record with only four goals conceded. Matebele have been in impressive form of late as they remain the only lower-division side to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and Kowa and his troops should be worried ahead of tomorrow’s tie.
