Africa Gold Cup: Relegation battle goes down to the wire

Just as is the case on who heads to Japan as African champions,the battle to see which teams avoid the chop from the Africa Gold Cup goes down to the final match day;18 August 2018.
As it stands,three sides that is log leaders Namibia(20 points),Kenya (17) and third placed Uganda (10) are all safe and will be playing in the top tier next season.
This means that former champions Zimbabwe,Morocco and Tunisia head to the final match day as the relegation candidates and will be trying to jostle for survival.
Zimbabwe travel to Kampala knowing well that a loss to the Rugby Cranes and a Morocco win over Tunisia in Monastir could see them play in the Africa Silver Cup in 2019.
For Tunisia who occupy fourth position on four points,a loss to Morocco in an all North African affair and a Zimbabwe win in Kampala will send them to the second tier.
“We have to work hard from Monday and be ready for Morocco and we are not getting relegated,” Tunisia coach Jaco Stoumann said after last Saturday’s 67-0 humiliation in Kenya.
The relegated side will be replaced by Africa Silver Cup winners during the 2019 season.
