MANZINI – The battle for the last paying sport in the MTN Premier League prizes, position five, is still wide open despite Tambankulu Callies’ four-point advantage.

Callies have 41 points but still face tough competition from Vovovo, who have 37 points, Manzini Wanderers (36 points) and Green Mamba (35) while Manzini Sea Birds are mathematically still in as well as they have 34 points. There are three more matches to play for each of these teams before the league curtain falls. “We didn’t take out chances in the first half when we dominated and created. We should have punished them but we didn’t do so. Even in the second half, we came back but didn’t increase the tempo of the match, which allowed them to punish us. “If we drop points, its denting our chances to finish at number five but we still have three games to fight,” Vovovo coach Caleb Ngwenya said after his side lost 1-2 to Moneni Pirates at the Mavuso Sports Centre last Sunday.

He said it was an otherwise spirited performance by his team given all the challenges they had administratively. “They are really working hard I’m impressed,” Ngwenya said. His Pirates counterpart, in assistant Thembela Dlamini, said the win was a bonus as Vovovo had been resilient. “They were beating us in midfield, as they were faster than us, so I had to make a change at half-time and introduced a faster player which gave us balance and we started coming hard at them and scored,” he said. He said the relegation fight was still on for them in the remaining three matches, but the win was a real boost in their quest. Pirates still need at least three to four more points to be safe even when the head-to-head rule has to apply. Goal difference does not count but the head-to-head fixtures.
