Do or Die for Dikwena in NFD Playoffs

Lidoda Duvha ended a run of five matches without a win in all competitions against their opponents from across the provincial border with that controversial 1-0 success just over a week ago in the opening fixture of these playoffs, Phathutshedzo Nange netting his fourth goal of the campaign. That was just the third time ever that Black Leopards have managed to overturn their more fancied opponents, in 15 attempts and their first since famously dumping Stars out of the Nedbank Cup in the quarter-finals in 2009.
