Namibia: Black Africa Raring to Go

Windhoek — Following an impressive sequence of consecutive wins in their last two league outings - Tigers Football Club will be out to ruffle feathers when they come up against reigning champions Black Africa in what promises to be an intriguing clash of the titans in the MTC Premiership League at the Sam Nujoma Stadium tonight.

Both teams are in form and a rare victory for the Donkerhoek-based Tigers FC cannot be ruled out if the form book is anything to go by. After a slow start that saw the Namibian champions collecting just one point from their opening two matches at the start of the current term, Brian Isaacs' charges now appear to have hit form and have been on an unbeaten run, winning all their last six league encounters on the trot.

The Gemengde-based outfit was in mean mood when they demolished Civics in last weekend's action and with the terrible twins Awilo Stephanus and Klaas Blom in scintillating form, the Tigers rearguard should brace itself for a tough evening.

In the towering Brave Warriors centre back, Tigers have one of the most accomplished defenders in the business, while burly striker Kaka Nekundi could prove quite a handful for the Black Africa defence manned by Da Costa Angula and veteran skipper Hartmann Toromba.

Over the years, Tigers have developed a habit of getting the better of the top dogs only to stutter against lesser opponents and tonight's clash should be no exception as the Ingweinyama will be out to prove that their current good form is no fluke.

An unlikely win for the blues will lift them into joint third place alongside FNB Orlando Pirates on 16 points each on the MTC NPL log standings, while such a positioning would also restore their shaky status among the Katutura big four.
