League leaders SuperSport United are probably crossing their fingers that all goes well tonight when they clash with Golden Arrows at Super Stadium.

Kickoff is 7.

Matsatsantsa coach Gavin Hunt will be hoping that all his players, particularly in-form striker Katlego Mashego, turn on the magic and get him the three points that will increase their one-point lead over second placed Ajax Cape Town.

Mashego has been finding the back of the net regularly these days, and if his exploits on Saturday are anything to go by, then Hunt doesn't have anything to worry about.

Hunt has been unusually circumspect about his team's chances, and so has the club's public relations officer, David Skosana.

This may be justified, as Manqoba Mngqithi's team has shown they are warriors, a spirit that has seen them steadily climb the league table to their present seventh spot.

"We want to take each game as it comes, and it is not appropriate to talk about winning the league.

"I think it is premature and we can be shocked as the race is still wide open. I want to encourage the fans to come and support them, we need them at this difficult time," Skosana said.

Adding to the pressure is the knowledge that should they falter, Ajax will be motivated to do all they can to beat neighbours Santos in the Cape Town derby tomorrow - propelling them to the top of the table.

Even though Matsatsantsa will be without towering defender Bongani Khumalo, who is suspended, and the injured Sibusiso Mahlangu, they do have players capable of competing with the likes of dangerous Arrows talisman Abia Nale and Musa Bilankulu.

Arrows' spokesman Zweli Mzolo said they wanted to secure their place in the top eight.

"We want to do everything we can to achieve that. Our intentions will not be affected by who they are and what position they hold in the league. We just have to stay single-minded and keep our focus," Mzolo said.
