Stellenbosch FC have claimed their place in the National First Division play-offs

Posted: 14 May 2017 Time: 17:17

Stellenbosch FC booked a play-off place in the National First Division (NFD) after a 1-0 success over already relegated Santos on Sunday.

The side from the Cape Winelands join Black Leopards and the side that finishes 15th in the Absa Premiership in the PSL’s Promotion/Relegation Play-Offs, where the winner of the round-robin competition will take their place in the top-flight next season.

Veteran Senegalese striker Mame Niang converted a penalty for Stellenbosch to seal third spot in the division.

They leap-frogged AmaZulu into third after the latter lost 1-0 at FC Cape Town, a result that also saved their hosts from relegation.

Those points moved FC Cape Town out of the relegation zone with Magesi FC, who were 3-0 losers at Mbombela United, relegated to the ABC Motsepe League along with Santos.

Thanda Royal Zulu, who have already been promoted as NFD winners, beat Real Kings 2-1, while Royal Eagles beat Witbank Spiurs 3-1. Black Leopards lost 3-0 at home to Mthatha Bucks.
