Premier Soccer League Promotion/Relegation Play-Off
Teams: Black Leopards v Jomo Cosmos
Date: 30 May 2018
Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium
Black Leopards are on the brink of securing promotion to the Absa Premiership as they host Jomo Cosmos in a Premier Soccer League Promotion/Relegation play-off tie at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.
Lidoda Duvha are in pole position in the mini-league standings after accumulating five points following a win and two draws.
Although, it’s almost certain that Joel Masutha will back his charges to go all out for the win buoyed by a massive home support after snatching a draw from the clutches of defeat at Platinum Stars.
Ezenkosi have their backs against the wall after failing to win any of their two matches. In their penultimate game, a win will put them level with the leaders, marking their final game a must-win.
If anything, the play-offs has thought many South Africans since its inception in 2005, the team with the momentum in the closing stages always reigns supreme and Leopards will take a leaf out of that book.
When these two sides met at Vosloorus Stadium a fortnight ago, they played out a 2-2 draw with Cosmos netting a late equaliser.
Here's how they line up:
Leopards: Muleka, Mashoene, Masia, Munganga, Munyai, Nene, Mudau, Nange, Tshepe, Mhlongo, Musonda.
Subs: Ndlovu, Ndou, Nevhulamba, Aifmi, Ndawonde, Mahangwahaya, Shivambu.
