Civics will go on top of the MTC/Namibia Premier League (NPL) with a win against Ramblers tonight at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.
Only a win will put it above first-placed Black Africa (BA) for at least 46 hours, with Black Africa only playing its match on Saturday away with United Stars in Rundu.
BA is currently on top of the log with three points while Civics, Tura Magic and Orlando Pirates come second, third and fourth places, respectively, from one match played so far.
BA has a superior goal difference of +3 to Civics while Magic and Pirates’ are both on +1.
Christy Guruseb who is in his second spell with Civics after a season with Orlando Pirates (last season) says he will not be carried away because of his first win of the season against Eleven Arrows last weekend.
Last season, Civics survived on the last day of the league to keep its premier league status and thus Guruseb says it will not happen again this time around.
“It’s too early to comment on that and there are still a lot to play for. We will not, however, be fighting relegation this season,” he says.
