Aces can't afford to go off the boil again

MPUMALANGA Black Aces have been blowing hot and cold this season and after winning away to Platinum Stars and holding Orlando Pirates to a draw, they lost to Free State Stars in their past three matches.

Against third-placed Santos, their task will not be easy.

Tonight's Absa Premiership clash at the Puma Rugby Stadium in Emalahleni is a battle between teams at the opposite ends of the table.

While the home side are trying to move away from the relegation zone, the Cape side are looking to pile more pressure on runaway leaders SuperSport United.

Aces have found the going tough since their promotion to the top flight at the beginning of the season and they face a real possibility of relegation to the National First Division.

They are still languishing on 19 points, only five points above Cosmos at the bottom of the log.

Santos's challenge for the league was dealt a crushing blow when they drew 1-all with Lamontville Golden Arrows and coach Boebie Solomons must have been disappointed with the result.

They had been playing well prior to the Arrows game but the draw gave United some breathing space and the defending champions are now comfortably nine points clear at the top.

But The People's Team will fancy their chances against Aces and will look to Mogogi Gabonamong - who has been impressive this season - and Eleazar Rogers for inspiration.

Aces' Mpho Maleka and Clifford Mulenga will carry the hopes of AmaZayoni's faithful on their shoulders.
