Relegation battle in Springs

12/03/04
Bottom of the log Hellenic host fellow relegation candidates Manning Rangers on Sunday in a Castle Premiership clash at the Pam Brink Stadium in Springs.

Hellenic deperately need to beat the teams just above them on the log as these games virtually become 'six-pointers'.

Hellenic recently found their winning touch when they beat high-flying Santos 1-0 at the Athlone Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The vital three points they received is a definite morale booster, however it did not move them away from the relegation zone where the team has been since the beginning of the season.

Rangers had a great start to the season but after coach Steve Komphela left unexpectedly to Dynamos, the Durban club's form dropped considerably.

The Mighty Maulers lie on the fringe of the relegation zone, three points above neighbours Zulu Royals and have nine more points than Hellenic who have only managed nine points in 21 games.

Rangers last win was against defending champions Orlando Pirates whom they beat 2-1 on January 14.

Coach Roy Barreto has since not had the winning formula as his team lost three away games, 2-1 to Santos, 3-0 against Swallows and 3-1 to city rivals Golden Arrows.

The Durbanites away form leaves little to be desired as they make the trip to Springs, Gauteng for a battle with an unknown quantity of players who have proven not to be push-overs since making the transition from the first division.
