29 April 2019 – The race for the league title in the Gauteng ABC Motsepe League took an interesting turn this past weekend as JDR Stars surprisingly dropped two vital points in a 2-2 stalemate against Pretoria Callies at home.
The draw played in favour of the log leaders, Dondol Stars who marched to a comfortable 5-0 victory over relegation threatened FC Ma-Lions who did nothing to trouble the hosts.
The two results mean anything less than a win for JDR Stars will see Dondol walking away with the title as a draw would be enough for them to be crowned champions.
In what promises to be an end to end encounter, both JDR and Dondol Stars will face each other on the very last day of the season, on Saturday, 4 May. JDR will enjoy home ground advantage in the fixture and will be hoping the 12th Man play’s its role on Saturday as they aim for maximum points.
FC Ma-Lions’ 5-0 drubbing sees them in a very delicate situation as anything less than a win will see them drop. Even with a win, Ma-Lion will rely on Vaal Professionals to do the job against Alexander Black Aces.
Aces are just a point above Ma-Lions and will be aiming at getting a good result to ensure their place in next season’s Gauteng ABC Motsepe League.
