There will be action aplenty at the Galeshewe Stadium on Saturday with three Safa SAB League games taking place.

Dalton Brothers will take on Barkly West based Chicken Inn at 11am, Pescodia Porto and Junior Tigers will take the field at 1pm, while Juventus will tackle Windsorton Young Stars at 3pm.

The next instalment of games at the venue will be on Sunday when old favourites Dalton Brothers take on Black Stars at 3pm.

Meanwhile, Porto looks set to secure the Frances Baard district’s Safa SAB regional league with 51 points in the bag as the conference heads for the last 10 games of the season.

Porto boasts an impressive 16 wins and only a single league loss after 20 outings. Thus far Porto also have the least number of drawn games amounting to three.

The Pescodia team is likely to edge further away from their nearest rivals when they come up against Pampierstad’s Junior Tigers on Saturday afternoon at the Galeshewe stadium at 1pm.

The second-placed team, Real Madrid, have bagged 49 points, with 15 wins and four draws.

Pampierstad’s Tigers have been rather toothless this season and are third from bottom of the log with a mere 17 points from four wins, five draws and a whopping 11 defeats.

Porto has proven to be remarkably resilient considering that they went through a technical staff change right at the onset of the season, swapping the highly recommended Lucas Motsemme from the Diskobolos military base for teacher and coach Arlon Wilson.

But Porto and Madrid cannot afford to relax. Macarena may be another challenger for the SAB league title. Macarena is a splinter club from the experienced Black Vultures who campaign mostly in the Local Football Association and Masters League.

Tswelopele, the Correctional Services side, which is arguably the fittest and most disciplined side in the league, have very little to show for their much-vaunted profile. They sit at fourth spot with 34 points after 10 wins, four draws and five losses.

Tidimalo’s Delportshoop United prop up the bottom with 12 points after 19 outings. Just ahead of them are Cameroon with 15 points.
