Larsen’s Predictions For PSL Promotion Race

Magesi FC head coach Clinton Larsen is predicting that teams are still going to drop points, as the race for promotion from the Motsepe Foundation Championship intensifies.

Larsen said this after his side dropped two points against Hungry Lions at home in the league however maintained their unbeaten run in the second half of the season.

The Limpopo side also maintained the top position on the championship log with 46 points from 24 matches.

The comments also came just before Magesi’s nearest competitor University of Pretoria dropped all points away at Maritzburg United on Wednesday evening.

There is a two-point gap between the two top sides now and nine a point difference from the side that’s placed third JDR Stars with six matches remaining.

“The unbeaten run is important but everyone is going to drop points between now and the end of the season,” Larsen said.

“Ourselves, Tuks, Baroka, Maritzburg everybody are going to drop points. So it was a matter of time before we dropped points today was that day but we are not disappointed. Like I said we have punched above our weight for so long the entire season and we will continue to do so and continue to surprise people.”

Dikwena tṧa meetsi and Tuks meet in a top-of-the-table clash on Saturday in Tshwane with Larsen saying if his side wins that clash, it will be difficult to catch Magesi.

“If we win on Saturday it won’t be that interesting because it will be over. We win that game it will be very difficult, depending on what happens today [Tuks vs Maritzburg] the gap could even be bigger when we beat them.”

“So for them, it’s their home game and if we perform like this I’m confident we can get something out of the game. But like you say every point in each of the last six games, as long as we don’t lose, we win and draw games I think that’s a recipe for promotion.”
