All indications are that Maun United Terrors was as at week 20 of the Debswana First Division League sitting on the relegation zone. The Golden Boys remained stuck at the bottom of the log with 14 points.
If the status quo remains into week 22, the team will be relegated to Nhabe Regional Football Association Second Division League.
Team Chairman Gwara Chirinda hopes that luck can come their way if Eleven Angels who are in the 2nd Position with 35 points win the playoffs and Tafic loses all their remaining games.
He explained that if Tafic loses all their remaining matches and the Golden Boys win all their remaining matches, that will mean they will be 20 points ahead of Tafic with 19 points. All this, provided Eleven Angels win the playoffs, which will create a 12th spot in the FDN which will automatically qualify Maun United Terrors to playoffs with the Second Division runners-up.
Should Terrors win the playoffs they will then stay in FDN next season, but the Golden Boys still have a mammoth task in their last matches against Eleven Angels and Peacemakers who are in position 2 and 4 respectively.
Eleven Angels who are vying for the playoffs will prove difficult to overcome for Terrors as to they too are desperate to collect 6 points in all their remaining 2 matches to make sure Santa Green does not jump them to the 2nd spot of which they have been there for almost 2 weeks now.
Meanwhile, Sankoyo Bush Bucks’ hopes for playoffs remain positive after their 3-1 win against Santa Green. The club is now standing at position 5 with 26 points. Ngurungu winning all their remaining 2 matches will bag them 32 points. Their game against Calendar Stars is still with the League Committee to decide after it was called off while they were leading 2-1.
First Division North Secretary Sailor Gosego confirmed that the Sankoyo and Calendar Stars matter is with the Board to decide.
He said the Board was waiting for the Referees report which was expected by Friday last week.
Should Sankoyo be awarded the 3 points, they will then be 29 points before their 2 remaining matches, which if they win will finish with 35 points to qualify them for playoffs should Eleven Angels lose all their matches.
Ngurungu will play Green Lovers on Sunday at Maun Sports Complex before travelling away to play against Nico United.
