Pressure still on for log leaders

LITTLE Birds should keep the pressure on Shinning Stars when they play tail-enders Soweto Angels in a Zwifa Premier League match at the Gal City field on Sunday.

Last week Birds beat the log leaders to close the gap to three points.

Stars have a difficult match against Major Chiefs, who trail the log leaders by eight points but have two matches in hand.

Defending champions Swartkops United, who are tied for third, could also find it tough when they tackle Gal City, who are just two points adrift.

Kuyasa United, who trail Swartkops on goal difference, should pick up maximum points against struggling Young Brothers.

In the First Division, log-leaders Strikers United are up against Umanyano Stars, who are nine points behind but have two matches in hand, at the Camper United field.

Young Killers could struggle to hold onto second place when they play Upper United, while Camper United, who trail Killers on goal difference, should pick up easy points against Everton Aces, who have just one point from seven matches.
