Three crucial fixtures will be played in the Sedgars SWD Premier League competition on Saturday. Western Hope, who are in third place (30 points after 11 matches) will travel to Rooirvierrift where they will take on George (29 points after 12 matches).
With the ruling whereby the top team at the conclusion of the preliminary round automatically advances to the final and the second and third team will play in a qualifier this match is of the utmost importance.
Pirates United, the surprise package of the season, who is currently second (40 points after 12 matches) will take on Pacaltsdorp at Pacs Park. Pacaltsdorp is in need for a victory to eliminate their chances to be relegated whilst a win will consolidate the position of Pirates. Mossel Bay (7th with 22 points after 12 matches) will host Sussex (6th with 24 points after 11 matches) in the Mossel Bay derby at the Van Riebeeck Stadium. Both teams are still in for a chance to qualify for the play-offs.
