GaRankuwa United have shown a great deal of improvement in their past two matches and should pose a serious threat to log leaders FC AK, who they meet in a National First Division Inland Stream match at Eldorado Park tomorrow.

Kickoff is at 3pm.

United, who are guided by the experienced Kenny Ndlazi, have recovered from a gloomy start to the season.

They confirmed their resurgence when they scored six goals and conceded only one in their past two matches against tough opponents. They massacred Winnerspark 4-0 in a lopsided clash on the road a fortnight ago and went on to pip Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 at home last Saturday.

Ndlazi yesterday said they will not rest on their laurels but will continue to punch beyond their weight in their next assignments. But he promised a cautious approach in Eldorado Park.

"We will keep it tight in all departments," said Ndlazi.

Kwezi "Meneer" expects a tough match against United.

"They have won two tough matches and this proves that they are on a roll.

"But we are facing them with a full-strength squad and we should compete with them. It is also encouraging that we are playing at home," said the former Jomo Cosmos official.

The experience of Elasto Kapowezha, Boitumelo Moleyane, and Alois Bunjira should count for the hosts. United's free-scoring forward Reason Chiloane could prove a handful for FC AK.
