Dreaded relegation fight and championship race will take centre stage in the MTN Premier League of Eswatini this weekend with Week 16 action.
With just 11 rounds of matches to play it’s still remains very tensely contested on both ends of the log standings with at least five teams still in the running for the top gong and almost an equal number facing the dreaded chop.
In actual fact with 33 points still to play for and the top team sitting on 31 points, mathematically no team is safe from the chop.
Log leaders Green Mamba go into the weekend tie against Vovovo knowing pretty well that any other result which is not a win might not grant them assurance at the apex.
On the other hand, second placed Young Buffaloes will entertain Moneni Pirates praying for a big win as they are in second courtesy of a superior goal difference.
Royal Leopards with a game in hand hope to remain within striking range and a win over Malanti Chiefs will carry that big favour.
Defending champions, Mbabane Swallows face their former coach Thabo Vilakati’s Manzini Wanderers in a tricky tie with Mbabane Highlanders dating Manzini Sea Birds.
At the basement, anchors Matsapha United travel to Manzini Sundowns with Mbabane Citizens hosting Tambuti.
