The talent of the National First Division (NFD) players will be exposed when SuperSport televises some of their matches this week.

The first televised match will be an Inland Stream clash between University of Pretoria and Kenny Ndlazi's Mpumalanga Black Aces in Pretoria tomorrow. Kickoff is at 4pm.

Another match to be televised live will be a meeting between basement club Witbank Spurs and GaRankuwa United at Ackerville Stadium in Witbank on Thursday. The match will also start at 4pm.

The focus will then fall on Durban Stars who welcome struggling Western Province United. This Coastal Stream match will be broadcast live from King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi on Friday from 4pm.

The NFD matches will keep the home fires burning considering that the Absa Premiership programme will be suspended for the duration of the Africa Cup of Nations that kicks off in Ghana on February 20.

There will also be potentially intriguing NFD matches that will not be televised.

Coastal Stream leaders Maritzburg United visit FC Cape Town at Blue Downs Stadium in the Mother City on Friday at 4pm. Inland Stream pacesetters FC AK travel to Seshego Stadium for a date with the reignited Winnerspark on Thursday at the same time.
