21 February 2020 – After suffering a demoralising 11-1 loss at the hands of log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies in the SAFA National Women’s League, First Touch Academy will be hoping for an improved performance when they face third-placed Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies tomorrow (Saturday, 22 February 2020).
Kickoff is at 15h00 at the Seshego Stadium in Polokwane.
Led by captain Noko Matlou of Banyana Banyana, First Touch is currently fourth on the table with 32 points, seven behind Celtic.
The high-flying and free-scoring Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) will want to return to winning ways after they came unstuck against University of Western Cape, who held them to a 2-2 draw last weekend, making them lose valuable ground on leaders Sundowns.
Tsunami Queens will host the high-riding (TUT) at Bohlokong Stadium.
In other matches also playing at 15h00 on Saturday, Sundowns will be away to Coal City Wizards at the Witbank Rugby Stadium.
Last weekend, the fifth-placed Wizards suffered a shock 3-4 defeat at the hands of Thunderbirds Ladies who are in 10th position.
Thunderbirds will face the University of Johannesburg at the AW Muller Stadium in Auckland Park.
Bottom of the table Richmond Ladies travel to Cape Town for a clash against the UWC at Ikamva Grounds in Parrow – the home of Ajax Cape Town.
In the only early kickoff on Saturday, Golden Ladies will take the long trip to Durban Ladies for a 13h00 date at the SJ Smith Stadium.
The hosts go into the match high on confidence after a 3-2 win over Richmond Ladies, while visitors will be hoping for a change in fortunes following a 2-3 loss to Celtic Ladies.
