SAB league newcomers Pescodia Porto FC have steadily crept up the leaderboard thanks to a four match winning streak which has boosted their chances of snatching the regional conference title where Real Madrid FC currently holds sway.

Speaking to the DFA yesterday Porto coach Lucas Motsemme was upbeat about his team’s chances of clinching the title in their debut year. “We are still in the race, even though we are now with a 50-50 chance into it. Anything is possible. I believe we can still take the title,” he said.

It was just barely a month ago that Porto had notched up their seventh draw off 22 matches, having only lost two games for an impressive 46 points. Since then Porto have notched up another four wins from their last seven games. They started their impressive run by slaying FC Barcelona 3-0, then went on to kill off Dalton Brothers with a repeat score of 3-0 over the same weekend, having to play fixtures on Saturday and Sunday.

Then, a fortnight ago Porto lined up the hapless Bonita Sundowns of Hartswater and clobbered them with what must be the biggest winning margin of goals ever in their 10-1 demolition job.

Chicken Inn from Barkly West were their next targets on the following Sunday. Chicken Inn gifted Porto with a 3-1 win to lead the Pescodia team to second place on the log with 58 points.

Porto are now short of just two points to catch up with leaders Real Madrid who currently have 60 points, and the Pescodia strongmen stand a good chance of making up that deficit as soon as tomorrow when they come up against The Students from Hartswater at the Galeshewe Stadium in a match scheduled to kick off at 3pm.

Motsemme said they were left with three games in which time they have no option but to make sure that they catch up and pass Real Madrid in order to win the SAB title.
