Following a formidable encounter at home against Rapotokwane Qualitho FC, Modimolle Celtic FC is gunning for Bela Bela Pirates FC. 

The Modimolle team shared the spoils with their Rapotokwane counterparts, after playing to 0-all stalemate at Tankeng grounds.

Celtic FC head coach, Andre Mavulula, said they were hoping to snatch maximum points, but unfortunately luck was on their side. 

“We are now preparing for our away match with Pirates. Bela Bela is like home away from home. I have told the boys that they need to go out there and play like they are on their home-ground, and focus on getting a positive result,” he said.

On the other hand, Rapotokwane Qualitho FC will be hosting Mookgophong Junior Stars FC. 

Rapotokwane Qualitho FC team manager, Reginald Mahlangu, acknowledged his team had not been doing well in the league this season. 

He told The BEAT that for the past three seasons his team had been on a roll, and that they are working hard to reclaim their form. 

“Our aim is to move up to third position by the end of the first round. One point away from home is not a bad result. We need to start winning games, and not allow complacency to distract us,” he said. 

Modimolle Home Defenders FC also shared the spoils with Vaalwater Boys 2 Men FC in a 2-all draw thriller.

Log leaders Diesel N Dust FC, who played to a 1-all draw with Modimolle Bussel FC, will visit Troublemakers FC in Modimolle on Saturday. 

Bussel FC will visit Boys 2 Men FC in Vaalwater.
