Silver Stars' lead in the voting charts for the lucrative Telkom Charity Cup is now unassailable.

The "Tycoons" have widened the gap, leading second-placed Kaizer Chiefs with more than 70000 votes.

With such a margin, the North West side are no longer under severe pressure as before, because Mamelodi Sundowns, who were their rivals for the top spot, have dropped to third position.

Despite the fact that Stars are in a comfortable lead in the voting chart, with 126820 votes by 2pm yesterday, they are still going all-out to garner more votes to avoid disappointment.

As a result, North West Premier Edna Molewa has also come out in the open, urging the people of her province to continue voting for their team.

Molewa, whose province will be hosting this prestigious one-day tournament, is keen to see Stars, who are the only professional side in the North West, qualify on the big day.

"I'm urging everybody in North West to rally behind Silver Stars. It will be a sad day if our own team fails to be part of the event, being hosts of the tournament," said Molewa.

She added that she was confident that people from her province would not disappoint, more so with a tournament of such magnitude being staged out of Gauteng for the first time since it was started in 1986.

Silver Stars were still leading with 126 820 votes, followed by Chiefs with 54 353 votes, Sundowns were third with 51 757 votes, then Orlando Pirates with 47 197 votes, Bloemfontein Celtic are fifth with 28 902 votes and Moroka Swallows are sixth with 2 467 votes.
