The Debswana First Division League resumes this weekend following a two-week break due to the Orange FA Cup round 48 action.

First Division North log leaders, Nico United, however, returned earlier than the rest of the batch when they hosted Maun Terrors in a re-scheduled match played on Saturday. Morgan Gaseitsiwe’s solitary strike in the first half was enough to hand the former Premier League side a 1-0 victory and saw them stretch their lead at the top to nine points.

This Sunday, Nico United kick-off the second round of the league campaign against struggling side, TAFIC in a match scheduled for the Francistown Stadium. The two sides are experiencing contrasting fortunes. Nico United look set to make amends for the disappointment of last season in which they failed to gain promotion to the elite league after their loss to Mogoditshane Fighters in the play-off. They are the only side yet to taste defeat, collecting 27 points in the process with a healthy goal difference of 13 goals.
