The rivalry between Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos will continue when the two clash in a National First Division inland stream fixture at Malamulele stadium tomorrow. Kickoff is at 3pm.

The two will be meeting for the first time since they were both relegated to the NFD at the end of last season.

The real test will be in the middle of the park where both sides boast quality players with Premiership experience.

Cosmos have a score to settle with Leopards, after David Thediela's lads beat them 2-0 to kick them out of the Premiership.

"We do not have any grudges against Leopards. Our preparations for this match are similar to what we do for other matches. I am happy that my boys are now determined and are gradually adjusting well to life in this division," Jomo Sono, Cosmos boss and coach told Sowetan yesterday.

His counterpart at Leopards, Joel Masutha, said playing against Cosmos was a motivation in itself.

"The boys are ready. The spirit in the team is very high," the Leopards' coach added.
