After last weekend’s empathetic victory in the league, Alexandra United will be hoping for the same result this weekend when they host LMP Stars at the Alexandra Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
This SAFA Second Division clash is set to kickoff at 13h00.
LMP Stars are harbouring in mid-table and will be looking to make up some strides in the log standings.
John‘Shoes’ Mosheou’s charges are currently placed fifth on the log standings with 49 points.
The men from Alexandra Township are six points adrift of second placed Beyonce FC but a staggering 18 points behind Vardos FC who have been in pole position the whole season and are just a win away from sealing the league title and promotion to the national playoffs for a spot in the National First Division (the second tier of South African football).
With the league already out of their grasp, United will perhaps use the remaining five matches of the season to prepare for next season.
It has been proven before that teams that finish the previous season in a rich vein of form usually have a better showing in the season that comes after.
