The 2011/12 Namibia Premier League comes to a close on Saturday when the final round of matches will be held. With Black Africa already having won the league, the focus will shift to the Kuisebmund Stadium in Walvis Bay where Eleven Arrows take on United Stars in a do or die match that will determine who will be relegated.
Arrows and United Stars are level on 17 points each although Arrows have a better goal advantage by four goals.
United Stars will thus have to win the match to secure their survival in the Premier League. A draw or a victory for Arrows will see United Stars joining Hotspurs in the first division next season.
Civics have already secured second position and the N$400 000 prize for finishing runners up to Black Africa, but the third place prize of N$200 000 is still open with African Stars (34 points), SKW (32), Blue Waters (31) and Tigers (31) all in the running.
Stars take on Tigers at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in a match that should provide a fascinating tussle, while SKW are at home to Mighty Gunners.
Blue Waters travel to Windhoek to take on already relegated Hotspurs at the Khomasdal Stadium.
At the Ramblers stadium, seventh placed Ramblers take on ninth placed Orlando Pirates.
All the matches start at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon.
Another competition that is also still open is that of the Top Goal scorer of the league.
According to the NPL’s latest statistics, Black Africa’s Jerome Louis and Richard Kavendji of Hotspurs are the joint leaders with 11 goals each.
Other players who still have a chance of winning the N$15 000 first prize are Mighty Gunners striker Harold Ochurub on 10 goals and Civics striker Costa Khaiseb on 9 goals.
The Top Goalscorers list is attached.
