LANDERS, WANDERERS IN TITANIC CLASH
M Highlanders vs M Wanderers Mavuso Sports Centre, 4.15pm – Now, get ready for one of the biggest fixtures in the local football calendar. Never mind the form of the two sides coupled by trophy drought, a Mbabane Highlanders versus Manzini Wanderers clash is always mouthwatering. The two giants are coming from embarrassing
2-1 and 4-1 defeats at the hands of Moneni Pirates and Manzini Sea Birds, respectively, last Sunday but they will have to sort each other out this afternoon. It is a tale of two cities in the literal sense. While Highlanders are second on the MTN log standings, Wanderers are dilly-dallying with the relegation chop, third from bottom with just 12 points from as many matches. Mavuso will be packed to the brim, surely.

Ndzimandze. lying at their lowest ebb, Mbabane Swallows return to local football after a disastrous Total CAF Champions League outing in the past week which saw the defending MTN League champions receive an embarrassing 8-1 defeat on aggregate at the hands of Tanzania’s Simba Sports.
In-between the back-to-back defeats to Simba, Swallows were handed their third defeat of the season by Malanti Chiefs.
The Birds are flying low and Tambuti will surely be salivating on the prospect of rubbing salt to gashing wounds this afternoon at the hot-as-furnace Mhlume.
In-house, things are upside down
