Bucks one loss away from relegation
JOHANNESBURG - Having clinched their spot in the ABSA Premiership for next season last weekend, Highlands Park could send another team down to the ABC Motsepe League this weekend. Mthatha Bucks were essentially sheep thrown into a lion’s den as they met high flying Lions of the North at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa yesterday afternoon. Rooted to the bottom, Amathol’amnyama last won a National First Division match on January 27 while Owen Da Gama’s Lions of the North have not lost a match in 21 outings. Highlands have, meanwhile, finished their race with a spot in the ABSA Premiership now confirmed but Da Gama insisted that they will be professional and play their remaining fixtures with the same zest they have been since he took over in August.
