Newly promoted First Division North league side, Mbalakalungu will be hoping to retain their lead at the summit when they travel to Mahalapye for a date with another rookie, Rolling Guys. The two sides, who go into the match on the backdrop of contrasting situations, are set to lock horns at the Mahalapye Secondary School ground.

Mbalakalungu are taking the league by storm after gaining promotion at the end of last season, leading the pack with 10 points from four matches ahead of tomorrow’s fixtures. The Parakarungu-based side have so far won three matches and played to a stalemate once, conceding only one goal in the process. Rolling Guys on the other hand are yet to win a match in their maiden First Division North league appearance. They have collected just two points from four matches and sit dangerously at position 11 early on in the season. Mbalakalungu’s position is threatened by Francistown-based side, Calendar Stars who are three points behind with a game in hand. Like the log leaders, Calendar Stars are yet to lose a match this season and have won two out of three. They are yet to concede a goal this season, proving their stability from the back.

Tomorrow, they welcome Mahalapye Railways Highlanders at Caledron ground. Highlanders have not found it easy after relegating from the Premier League last season. Out of four games so far, they are yet to win a match after playing four stalemates. They are sitting in position six with four points. Motlakase Power Dynamos appear to have found their mojo this season, breathing heavily on the necks of the log leaders. They take on Santa Green tomorrow, hoping to register their third win of the season. They sit in position two with eight points from four matches. Another former Premier League side, TAFIC are third on the log with eight points and will take on Green Lovers tomorrow in Serowe. Matjimenyenga, as TAFIC are popularly known, survived relegation to the regional leagues last season, dubbed the greatest escape when Eleven Angels gained promotion through the play-off.
