Hollywoodbets Super League Women: Gameweek 11 Preview

TUT Ladies target maximum points against Ma-Indies Ladies

Disappointingly for our national team, we had to call off our international friendly with the third-best nation on the planet, Netherlands, due to members of our squad testing positive for Covid-19.

Right now, all our thoughts and well wishes are with our sisters who light up our screens each week to fully recover and return to their respective clubs for Hollywoodbets Super League action.

UWC Ladies, JVW FC and Mamelodi Sundowns were granted permission by the league to postpone their fixtures last weekend and this will continue for this round as well. There are four games to look forward to, so without further ado, let’s delve closer into each clash in our weekly preview!

Saturday 3 July

Durban Ladies 18/10
Draw 2/1
Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies 13/10
(13:00)

Durban Ladies step into the month of July with an extra bounce in their step and deservedly so after turning around their campaign in impressive fashion. The team is finding their feet, moving up to 10th in the standings and finally seem to be getting the most out of the players who are currently the team to watch as they continue to gel as a unit.

If you want to be entertained as a football purist, watch out for the talented footballers from my hometown.

Covid-19 protocols denied us the opportunity to see founder Mary-Jane Sokhela’s glowing smile as her team won three games on the trot, tallying 13 goals in the process, beating Richmond United (3-2), Ma-Indies Ladies (5-1) and Golden Ladies (5-1).

Former Banyana Banyana striker Silindile Ngubane, now 34, who scored a hat-trick last weekend in Mafikeng, will be aiming to further strengthen her team’s progress at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Bloemfontein Celtic have also been steadily improving, but their winning streak came to end, tasting defeat at the Tsakane Stadium against First Touch FC last Sunday, their second loss in eight games. However, winning the other six games offers little reason to panic.

Phunya Sele Sele will be looking to get back to winning ways and close the gap on the teams above them. I see them narrowly edging this encounter. If you’re taking a bet, I suggest adding Bloemfontein Celtic to your multiples at 13/10.

TUT Ladies 5/10
Draw 5/2
Ma Indies Ladies 47/10
(15:00)

TUT Ladies will be somewhat disappointed after failing to draw level with log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, dropping two valuable points away to Richmond United in a 2-2 stalemate at the Mziwabantu Stadium, with Njabulo Sangweni and Jeanet Mohale finding the back of the net for coach Anna Monate’s charges.

With all due respect to their opponents, TUT Ladies have much more quality in their ranks and even though Nomvula Kgoale is a doubt after being called up to Banyana Banyana duty, they’re my banker bet this weekend to claim maximum points in Tshwane.

Ma-Indies Ladies have been blowing hot and cold; two losses in three games means they have to roll up their sleeves and grind out a few results to move from midtable to the top. The visitors come into the clash smarting from a 5-1 defeat at the Chatsworth Stadium to Durban Ladies and will be eager to get back to winning ways.

If you’re looking to have a wager, TUT Ladies is the only way to go for me.

TUT Ladies are steadily moving up the standings

Thunderbirds Ladies 12/10
Draw 2/1
Richmond United Ladies 2/1
(15:00)

Thunderbirds Ladies play host to Richmond United at the Sisadakushe Stadium, with their sights firmly set on winning their third straight league game. The Eastern Cape outfit have already kept three clean sheets in a row as coach Thembalethu Alpeni’s team begin to hit their straps, find confidence within themselves and continue moulding a winning mentality into everyone involved.

Philisa Mjambane relays her coach’s vision of how he wants the game to be played with her enthusiast leadership qualities on the pitch. All coaches would appreciate her work rate and character in and around the squad.

Richmond United have only claimed a single win from their last seven games, only managing to snatch maximum points against Golden Ladies one month ago. The visitors come off a hard-fought battle which saw them share the spoils in a 2-2 draw with TUT Ladies.

My money is on the Thunderbirds to make home advantage count at 12/10.

Sunday 4 July

Coal City Wizards 11/2
Draw 26/10
First Touch FC 9/20
(15:00)

Sunday’s action sees high-flying First Touch FC make the trip to Witbank to lock horns with Coal City Wizards. The hosts’ fixture with JVW FC was postponed last Sunday meaning ‘Mawizards’ would’ve had two weeks to prepare since their last meeting with champions Masandawana.

First Touch, on the other hand, come off impressive back-to-back victories over JVW FC and Bloemfontein Celtic and are clearly the favourites to collect three points in Mpumalanga. The visitors used slick combination play to get the better of Siwelele and will be hoping they can replicate the performance to close the gap on the top teams.

Select First Touch FC with confidence to win at 9/20.

QUAD @ 10/1
Bloemfontein Celtic Ladies Win 13/10
TUT Ladies Win 5/10
Thunderbirds Ladies Win 12/10
First Touch FC Win 9/20
