AFTER their morale-boosting win over PE Homerovers – their first of the season – last week, Motherwell Academy could prove a handful for NMMU Madibaz at their South Campus tomorrow evening.
The students top the Pefa log on goal difference and, together with Hearts, are unbeaten this season.
Hearts face KwaDwesi All Stars at Kemsley Park on Sunday.

The match of the weekend should be the clash between Forresters and Warriors at the EC Command field on Sunday.
