NFD Round Up

There were some interesting National First Division results this weekend with African Warriors beating bottom-of-the-table FC Cape Town 2-0 to draw level on points with leaders Milano United, Thanda Royal Zulu and Chippa United played to a 1-1 draw, while there were also wins for Maluti FET College and Witbank Spurs.

In addition, three games ended goalless.

With Milano not in action, it was the turn of second and third-placed Warriors and Chippa to prove a point.

Warriors easily overcame the African Beasts with Bonginkosi Nxumalo and Nkosinathi Myeni on the score sheet but the Chilli Boys dropped two valuable points in KZN.

Velile Zitha netted for Amabhubhesi and Carl Finnigan did the job for the Cape Town side.

Maluti FET College, thanks to successful strikes from Pako Mahaabo, Malefetsane Rankati and Thabang Rammutsoe grabbed a vital 3-2 away victory over Blackburn Rovers - which has now conceded 10 goals in five games.

Maluti’s win helped them leapfrog a number of teams to sit on the same number of points (seven) as fourth placed United FC, who surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to Witbank Spurs.  Veteran midfielder Peter Mubayiwa hit the winner for Siyavutha.

Last weekend, Jomo Sono spent an extra day in Cape Town to watch his next opponents, Roses United, play FC Cape Town in order to get a better idea of how to overcome Sinky Mnisi’s side, and subsequently get his first win. But Jomo Cosmos’ 0-0 draw at Bloemfontein means the former PSL giants continue to remain near the foot of the table.

With gale-force winds battering the Mother City on Friday night and Saturday it was hardly surprising that another two clashes also ended goalless. A 10-man Black Leopards and Santos shared the spoils in Stellenbosch, while the Parow clash between Vasco da Gama and Sivutsa Stars left both teams mid-table.
