NFD Top Four Drop Points, Eagles Soar To Third

There was further drama in the race for National First Division honours as logs leaders, Baroka FC, crashed to a shock 3-1 defeat at the hands of Vasco da Gama, Highlands Park were held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Moroka Swallows, while there were also losses for Witbank Spurs and Milano United.
 
However, Royal Eagles and Mbombela United both boosted their chances of a play-off spot following important 1-0 victories over AmaZulu and Siyavutha respectively.
 
Bakgaga without their suspended captain, Olaleng Shaku, fell apart in the first half at Parow, where a superb shot by Siphesihle Stuurman and an easy finish from Alcardo Van Graan saw Sammy Troughton’s side take the early advantage.
 
During the second spell, it was end-to-end stuff before Stanley Muishond made it 3-0 but following their penalty miss, the Limpopo team finally did get onto the scoresheet via Jacky Motshegwa.
 
Highlands failed to overtake Baroka after Clifford Mulenga’s equaliser gave the Birds another vital point but they still remain rock bottom with fifteen points to play for.
 
Earlier, Cyprian Khambule opened the score for second-placed Lions of the North, who now have Eagles breathing down their neck, following Katlego Mphela’s winner at Harry Gwala.
 
But with just one point separating the next three clubs, it’s anybody’s guess as to which team will rise to the occasion.
 
Mbombela, with the same goal difference (+ 13) as Eagles, have suddenly found some form so it came to no surprise that they managed to overpower Spurs thanks to Tommy Mandlazi’s late strike, which was the only goal of this Mpumalanga derby.
 
Eezy my Kinnes like Siyavutha slumped to their second successive defeat after the African Beasts’ Marshall Munetsi enabled Johnny Ferreira’s outfit to secure a 1-0 win.
 
Cape Town All Stars also provided a similar score-line at Charles Mopeli as
 
Mlungisi Mbunjana put another nail in African Warriors’ coffin.
 
The match between Thanda Royal Zulu and Santos ended all square at 1-1 with each side putting away a dubious penalty, while Black Leopards edged Mthatha Bucks 1-0 in Thohoyandou thanks to Thulani Shivambu.
