Acornbush United can clinch the Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe League title this week, following their heroics in the Nedbank Cup, while the relegation battle is far from being decided.

Acornbush, who lead the way in Mpumalanga, secured their spot in the next round of the Nedbank Cup after defeating Absa Premiership side, Cape Town City 1-0 on Sunday.

The leader’s involvement in the cup means they will play their catch up fixture against Tjakastaad Junior Sheppards FC on Wednesday, 15 March 2017.

Should Acornbush avoid defeat on Wednesday, they will be confirmed as winners of the Mpumalanga stream.

Moving to the foot of the table, FC Benfica enhanced their chances of the survival with a 2-1 win over Mlambo Royal Clubs.

Mphakathi Academy also secured a much-needed win after running out 3-1 winners over Premier United, who are down and out at the bottom of the table. While, Mhluzi Black Rangers cruised to a 3-0 win over Mapulaneng United FC to boost their survival hopes.

Benfica are in 15th spot, two points behind Mhluzi Black Rangers FC and Mphakathi, who sit in 13th and 14th respectively.

Other results were as follows:
Lumoja FC 1-1 FC Zone Mavo
Forek Academy FC 2-1 Secunda Stars FC
