North stream drama shows FOOt­BALL Is A fiCKLE GAME


Sunday Express - - SPORT -

the fans and play­ers alike must be go­ing through af­ter com­ing so near to pro­mo­tion once again.

any­way, that is foot­ball and I sup­pose that’s what makes it more en­ter­tain­ing — this un­pre­dictabil­ity which makes you un­sure of the out­come of a match un­til the fi­nal whis­tle is blown.

all the same, I would like to con­grat­u­late both Sky Bat­tal­ion and war­riors for a job well done.

Sky Bat­tal­ion have been in great from day One and I am not sur­prised they are now in the big time. This is prac­ti­cally a new team af­ter Su­per King­dom (SK) from the B Divi­sion pur­chased Sky Bat­tal­ion’s a divi­sion fran­chise at the start of the sea­son.

Th­ese boys re­ally de­served this glory af­ter the hunger, com­mit­ment and de­ter­mi­na­tion they showed through­out the sea­son.

war­riors, on the other hand, showed what is called char­ac­ter in the way they won pro­mo­tion amid such high drama. I mean, the Butha-Buthe po­lice out­fit never gave up in their fight to join the big league.

now that the league cam­paign has ended, my ad­vice to both teams that won pro­mo­tion is to start pre­par­ing for life in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent world.

To start with, both teams need to bol­ster their squads with a few ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers if they are to sur­vive the pres­sure that comes with play­ing in the premier league.

I would also ad­vise them to start look­ing for spon­sor­ship as it would be vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble to op­er­ate in the league with­out re­sources.

Mean­while, the rel­e­ga­tion dog­fight in the premier league is now get­ting in­ter­est­ing with Mphat­lalat­sane (15 points), Linare (19), Rovers (20), Lik­ila United (20), LMPS (20) and Liphakoe (22) all fight­ing for sur­vival with only four matches left be­fore the sea­son comes to an end.

Two teams are rel­e­gated at the end of the sea­son and any of the afore­men­tioned could find them­selves go­ing down come end of the cam­paign.
