PSL Promotion Play-Offs
Teams: Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila v Royal Eagles
Date: 25 May 2019
Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium.
Royal Eagles will have a chance to revive their hopes of clinching top flight football when they clash with Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the Promotion/Relegation play-offs on Saturday afternoon at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Eagles started the play-off campaign on a good note after beating their fellow National First Division outfit Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 1-0 but they came unstuck in their second match against Maritzburg United, losing by the same scoreline last Sunday.
The KwaZulu-Natal side have slipped three points adrift of leaders and provincial rivals Maritzburg United, who have six points at the top of the play-off mini-log.
On the other hand, TTM are virtually out of the running for a last place in the Absa Premiership after losing their first two games.
Following a 1-0 defeat against Eagles in their first match, Moma Medic’s charges went down 2-0 against the Team of Choice on Wednesday.
The result condemned them at the bottom of the mini-log without points on the board after two matches.
TTM will be aiming to get revenge against Eagles, which could damage the fellow NFD side’s chances of challenging Maritzburg for promotion and victory for the KwaZulu-Natal side will make way for a two-horse race together with provincial rivals United, in a bid to gain promotion.
Here's how they line up:
TTM: Ramaele, Meso, Mohloding, Nyadombo, Mabotja, Ononogbu, Ndlondlo, Nkoana, Mbanjwa, Msomi, Makhubu.
Eagles: Nyame, Cele, Bakah, Manganyi, Shezi, Stoffels, Tau, Wambi, Ntuli, Nene, Mashiane.
