HIGHLANDS PARK v CT ALL STARS

Highlands Park continue to enjoy a very successful season so far and will end 2017 on top of the NFD standings win, draw or lose to CT All Stars on Saturday.

COMPETITION STRONG FOR NFD GOLDEN BOOT

With the halfway mark of the season quickly approaching. the competition to be crowned the NFD's top goal scorer is hotting up with four players leading the charge on 6 goals each.  Last season was a bit of a runaway for Sedwyn George from Royal Eagles with 20 goals and Mhlengi Cele from Thanda Royal Zulu close behind with 19. Veteran Nomvethe wasn't far off the mark with 17 goals for Amazulu. 

This is how matters stand after Round 14 of the current season.

CT ALL STARS 1 UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA 2

Tuks kept in touch with logleaders Highlands after posting just their second away win of the season on Friday in Cape Town.  As was the case last season, Setelele scored for the home side, but that was only after Moseki and Bruchhausen had contributed for Tuks. The goal for Moseki is his 6th of the season and he joins Liphoko of Mbombela, Phewa of Real Kings and Modibedi Mokoena from Super Eagles as the leading goal scorers of the current season. All Stars drop two places to 10th.

CT ALL STARS v UNIVERSITY of PRETORIA

Tuks have a chance to go 2nd on their own and close the gap to logleaders Highlands to just one point on Friday in Cape Town.  That might be easier said than done however as the Cape side beat Tuks with a Setelele goal last season. Added to that – All Stars won away last week while Tuks lost at home.

NFD 2017/18 - WEEK 13 WRAP

STELLENBOSCH FC 1 SUPER EAGLES 0

The pressure has lifted a little on Stellenbosch FC coach Steve Barker as the Cape side won for the first time in 7 weeks on Friday. That problem probably reverts to his opposition coach now, whose team has lost two in a row and sunk to 13th on the log. A first half goal from Tony Zwane was enough to see the home side to glory. It was his first goal of the season. This was the first meeting between the two sides.
