25 April 2019 – The intense battle for promotion at the SAB League’s SAFA West Rand leg has reached its final stages with FC BUGP and Munsievile United FC tied on 68 points with BUGP sitting at the top on goal difference.
United on the other hand have a game in hand and with just a few matches remaining, maximum points will be the target as both sides eye a spot in the play offs for a place in the ABC Motsepe League.
Maholoisane FC are not to be ruled out of the race just yet. The side lies third on the table with just a point separating them from the top two and still see themselves as title contenders.
While the battle for promotion intensifies at the top, the relegation dog fight at the bottom is getting even more difficult for the bottom three. FC Academy, with a disappointing five points from 27 matches are already relegated while Doornkop FC are just four points behind Barcelona with three matches to go.
Giant Killers are yet to be in the safe bracket but their next encounter against bottom placed FC Academy should see them collect maximum points and breathe a sigh of relieve from the dreaded drop.
