Following an excellent pre-season and recruiting drive, Babina Noko look a formidable outfit, while Michael Lukhubeni’s future as head coach of Royal AM is under scrutiny with sources suggesting he’s been suspended.

A good away point for Rise and Shine, who’ve been out of the second tier for almost a decade, while it’s back to drawing board for the Urban Warriors’ head coach, Vladislav Heric.

Cape Town All Stars 1 JDR Stars 1

An intense match at Parow, which came alive in the second half and although both outfits fought for a winner, it wasn’t to be.

Free State Stars 0 Uthongathi FC 1

Despite wholesale changes, the Cane Cutters surprisingly showed some early promise against the same club, who thumped them 3-0 in KZN just over a year ago.

The Spirited Ones, who’re set to soon release an official statement about their name change, stung Abantu Bemthetho with a show of attacking football, which included a penalty for each side.
