Township Rollers rule the roost in the league with an advantage of three points, with two matches go before the season curtain comes down. Township Rollers to PS the table with 60 points from 28 games while Botswana Defence Force X1 and Gaborone United are second and third respectively although they are tied on 57 points from the same number of games.

Ndlovu won the 2011 to 2012 and 2012 to 2013 titles with Mochudi Centre Chiefs before he rejoined his former club Township Rollers where he has been enjoying a good run.

Southern Eye Sport spoke to the former Highlanders and Warriors legend from the Botswana base on how he rates his chances.

“It is still very tight because anything can happen now. It is still a marathon because it will go to the wire. We are leading with a three point advantage, but we have to remain focused because the other teams are also fighting.

“We were supposed to play at Lobatse which is 70km away from Gaborone, but we are now going to play in Phikwe which is 400km from Gaborone. Gunners were banned from playing at Lobatse following crowd trouble that rocked their game against the team coached by Rahman Gumbo (Gaborone United). So now we have to travel a longer distance,” he said.

Ndlovu said they would face the biggest challenge against Gunners and Miscellaneous — a team fighting for survival.
