Dower United close to settling women’s title
Maximum points from their double-header will see Dower United take a giant step towards the Safa-NMB women’s league soccer title.
Dower take on Rainbow Stars at Booysen Park on Saturday and Zwide All Stars at the Zwide Stadium on Sunday and should win both matches.
Meanwhile, their closest rivals are involved in crucial games.
With six matches remaining, Dower have a 12-point lead over NMU Madibaz and Volcano, who are tied in second place. Both have a match in hand.
Madibaz and Volcano clash at the NU9 stadium on Saturday in a match neither can afford to lose if they are to challenge Dower for the title.
Volcano face a difficult match against PE United at the same venue on Sunday, while Madibaz have a bye.
United are the only team to have beaten Dower this season. They won 4-2 a fortnight ago.
United, who are tied with Shatterpufe, two points behind Madibaz and Volcano, face their rivals at the Chevrolet Stadium on Saturday.
Walmer Ladies’ two matches have been postponed.
