11 February 2019 – The Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe League had some closely contested fixture this past weekend as the season draws closer to its conclusion. With a place in the ABC Motsepe National Play Offs and National First Division on offer, the race for pole position intensified this past weekend.
Log leaders, Acornbush were away to Somhlolo United where they surprisingly had to fight hard for their 2-1 win against the 12th placed side. The result sees Acornbush remain strong title favourites with an eight-point gap from Witbank City Lads who lost a bit of ground on Friday when they were edged 1-0 by Mlambo Royal Cubs FC who moved to 7th position on the table.
Nkomazi Real Aces got a bit of a breather from the relegation battle after doing well to put three past Bushbuckridge Bohlabela United in a 3-1 victory at home while FC Zone Mavo also used their home ground advantage in a 2-1 win over FC Benfica.
Exactly 10 rounds of fixates remain in the Mpumalanga ABC Motsepe League with lots still to play for in a quest to be crowned champions of Mpumalanga.
