ALL roads lead to Bango Ground in Mpopoma this morning where Mthala take on Cowdray Park Masters in a Bulawayo Social Soccer League encounter.
What makes this game more interesting is that the two teams were quick off the blocks, winning a number of games on the trot.
On the other hand, positions at the top changed after a win by 70 Combination after the top two teams Mthala and FC Stars lost the momentum and drew their last games.
In a Cowdray Park derby played between Fireworks and Cowdray Park Masters, Fireworks walked away with the bragging rights with a 3-2 win.
As a result of that Masters would like to quickly forget that result which is a bitter pill to swallow by returning back to winning ways as soon as possible, starting with this morning’s encounter.
In Pool B Mayihlome and Skippers are neck to neck after accumulating 18 points each coming into this weekend’s games though the former are the log leaders due to a superior goal difference.
This morning Mayihlome have what looks like easy assignment against mid table Shwelele who they are expected to brush aside without shedding a lot of sweat.
The same applies to skippers who are set to trade iron and leather against another lowly placed Mabutweni.
