Sunday Sizzles With Super Soccer 28/11/03
There is a bumper day of Castle Premiership action this Sunday with four games taking place from coast to coast.

The pick of the days games is the clash at Loftus Stadium between Sundowns and Moroka Swallows.

The Brazilians enter a crucial stage of what has been a very disappointing season. If they are to salvage anything from it wins over the likes of the Dube Birds are going to have to become regular occurrences.

Currently occupying a lowly 10th on the standings, the 'Downs braintrust of Oscar Fullone and Khabo Zondo will need to inspire something special from their expensively assembled, but disillusioned, squad.

For Gavin Hunt and his Swallows charges, the game represents a chance to show off their title credentials.

Lying four points behind leaders Ajax Cape Town in sixth place, the Birds need a win to keep in touch with the leagues front-runners.

The Cape Derby at the Athlone Stadium between Hellenic and Santos should be overflowing with the usual passion and pride associated with clashes between fierce city rivals.

The People's Team have been gaining momentum in recent weeks and currently occupy fourth spot on the league standings, three points behind leaders Ajax Cape Town.

Sadly for the Greek Gods their season has been one to forget and they are yet to register their first win after nine rounds of the campaign.

But with last seasons savior Neil Tovey now back at the helm of the Landsdowne-based team they are expected to show marked signs of improvement.

On the east coast of the country reigning champions Orlando Pirates take on the unpredictable Golden Arrows at Kings Park Stadium.

Pirates have found renewed vigor since Augusto Palacios assumed the coaching reins in a care-taker capacity from Roy Barreto.

The Bucs have subsequently beaten Sundowns, Swallows and Hellenic and are starting to show their worth as league champions and are poised to start putting real pressure on the league leaders.

Arrows, under Nkosinathi 'Sputla' Biyela, are an up and down team, capable of playing some of the best passing football in the country one day, then flopping the next as they did in last weekends meek defeat to Silver Stars in the semifinals of the Coca-Cola Cup

The newly appointed Biyela is admittedly still on a learning curve at Abafana Bes'Thende but he will want to start harvesting points so that they can improve on their current 11th position in the league.

In Gauteng another Durban team will be in action as Manning Rangers travel to Bidvest Stadium for an encounter with Wits University.

The Students are on course for a PSL record as they have not conceded a goal in nine games.

And with keeper Wayne Roberts beaten three times in the mid-week Coca-Cola Cup semifinal replay against Kaizer Chiefs, they will be eager to get back to their impenetrable best.

Rangers new coach Barreto has not managed to win a game with his new club and he has a formidable task against the tactically sound Students mentor Roger De Sa.
