Jwaneng Galaxy’s frenetic gallop towards a second successive title received a jolt in the form of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Masitaoka at the weekend. Despite the setback, the diamond miners look poised for another shining moment as they hold a two-point and game-in-hand advantage over their nearest pursuers, Township Rollers.

While at the top, it is full tilt towards the finish line, at the extreme end it is an ugly brawl for survival. The north, after enjoying a stress-free end to the 2022-2023 season where none of its members were relegated, finds itself with two teams occupying relegation spots. Three teams will go down to the First Division at the end of the season.
