Stars, Tigers in Must-Win Clash Tonight

Defiant African Stars coach Woody Jacobs has indicated that he is not too much worried about the six points gap between the 3rd placed Reds and incumbent log leaders Black Africa in the MTC Premiership.

Buoyed by last weekend’s convincing 2-0 win over Tura Magic in the semifinals of the Biest Cup, the outspoken mentor has made it clear in no uncertain terms that the main focus is on tonight’s penultimate showdown against old foes Tigers at the Sam Nujoma Stadium at 19h00. “There is still some way to go, the league is a marathon and it’s never over until the fat lady sings. We must just take it game by game and see how it goes,” says Jacobs.

In a relegation dogfight, fresh from their come-from-behind 4-2 win over fellow relegations candidates PC Blue Boys in last weekend’s league action, Eleven Arrows greet Rundu Chiefs in an absolute six-pointer at the Kusiebmund Stadium in Walvis Bay tomorrow afternoon. United Stars entertain Civics in a match of convenience with nothing in store for both mid-table clubs when they trot onto the pitch at the Rundu Stadium. In the only fixture slated for Sunday, FNB Orlando Pirates host Wire Shipanga’s much-improved LHU Blue Waters at the Sam Nujoma Stadium at 14h00. Unless otherwise stated all matches start at 15h00. In mid week action, Ramblers completed a league double over an under strength Tura Magic outfit, dispatching their mid-table cross-town rivals via a solitary and classic goal from the educated boot of Lucky Kooper. After a goalless first half, enterprising stocky winger Lorenzo Louis bamboozled the Tura defense with an amazing slalom run before releasing Kooper, who slotted home from close range to give the Tunschel Street Boys their 2nd win over their opponents in the current term.
