The Lions of the North, Highlands Park FC extend the Lead with nine points at the top of the GDL

Highlands Park FC are more likely to seal this year’s Gauteng Development League title thanks to 1-0 win over Randburg AFC as they go 9 points clear at the top of the log.

The Lions of the North, took full advantage of the home ground on Saturday’s afternoon scoring an early and only goal for the match in the 7th minute of the game.

Kaizer Chiefs FC who are on the second position with 64 points, defeated Mamelodi Sundowns FC by 3-1 on Sunday at Naturena Village. Kaizer Chiefs’ inconsistency having dropped crucial points during the season gave an advantage to an ever consistent Highlands Park who have been putting in good performances week in and week.

However the Glamour boys are not to be overlooked and they have been looming in, edging closer to the top of the GDL putting immense pressure to the log leaders.

For Highlands Park, the biggest mountain to climb that awaits them is to keep on winning ways as the closing of the season is nearby. Highlands Park has assembled a complete side that is not easy to crack. A team that is comfortable starting the ball at the back, knock it around on the ground.

The team has also been dominating in the midfield with outstanding players that have the ability to penetrate the opponents with marvelous passes. The teams scoring record and defending record has done a good job having only conceded 16 goals while netting 80 goals after 29 games.

With Highlands Park holding a nine point lead and four games left to be played in the remainder of the season, it is hardly surprising that they are the most likely side to walk away as champions of the 2023 Gauteng Development League.

On the 30th of September, Highlands Park will be playing against Panorama Football Club who are sitting on the 11th position of the log.
