Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) will bid to become Limpopo’s fourth Premier Soccer League side after securing the last promotion playoffs spot with a 2-0 win over Richard’s Bay United.
Thembisani Nevhulamba’s 48th minute strike and Phumele Bhengu’s penalty in the 79th minute were enough for TTM on the final day of the 2018/19 National First Division (NFD) season in Thohoyandou.
TTM joins Royal Eagles and the side that finishes 15th in the Absa Premiership in the playoffs. Coach Moma Medic was proud of his players.
TTM in their second season in the promotional league finished the campaign in third place with 51 points, same as Ajax Cape Town behind them with a lesser goal difference.
TTM and Eagles will have to wait until next week Saturday to know their opponent in mini league as the relegation battle goes down to the last 90 minutes of the season in the PSL.
Meanwhile Richards Bay finished in seventh spot on 42 points. Coach Brandon Truter says they expected a tough game knowing how enormous the clash was for the opposition.
Truter adds that despite the loss on the final day he is happy, the side met their objective, to sustain their status. – Report by Lethabo Kganyago
