Match Preview: Derby clash for the Alex community

In a match that will have the entire community of Alexandra Township divided in half for just 90 minutes, Alexandra FC will take on Alexandra United in what promises to be a hotly contested local derby.

The two bitter rivals clash on Friday night in a SAFA Second Division match. Kick-off is scheduled for 19h00.

These sides are just separated by four places on the log standings. Alex United have been the better side throughout the season. They have been in the top part of the table during the course of the 2012/13 campaign while Alex FC have been mid-table occupants.

United will go into this match on the back of having their match last weekend postponed due to an assistant referee failing to show up for their fixture with LMP Stars at home.

Alex FC head into this encounter after a share of the spoils with Highlands Park last Saturday in Modderfontein.

United are currently occupying fourth place on the standings with 49 points from 27 games whilst Alex FC are placed eighth on the log standings with 38 points, there is a staggering 11 point difference between the two local rivals.

These two teams met earlier this season on February 9 this year. United prevailed 2-1 winners on that day in Balfour Park.
