thumbnail Hello,

In a host of matches this weekend for South Africa's overseas stars, Kagisho Dikgacoi's Crystal Palace face Leicester City in a must-win game for the faltering side

With the season coming to a close in England, Belgium and the Netherlands a number of South Africans should be in action this weekend around the footballing world.

In England, Steven Pienaar will be in action against a Paulo di Canio-inspired Sunderland in what should be an electric Premier League clash, with both sides searching for all three points. Everton sit four points behind a Champions League qualification spot and David Moyes will push for a victory in order to help close the gap.

Earlier in the week Kagisho Dikgacoi's Crystal Palace were hammered 3-0 by Ipswich Town in the Championship, which means the team currently sit on 66 points and are in 5th position.

With automatic qualification to the Premier League looking nigh impossible, Dikgacoi will hope his side can still finish in the top six and have a chance to qualify via the playoffs. The Eagles face Leicester City this weekend in a crunch clash, with Leiceister merely three points behind the Crystal Palace.

Dean Furman will also be in action this weekend for Doncaster Rovers as his side are set to play Notts County on Saturday.

In Belgium Anele Ngcongca will hope to score once more for Genk when they play Club Brugge in the Belgian PRO league. Darren Keet will be in goal for Kortjik when they play Mons while Daylon Claasen will hope to contribute towards Lierse's cause when they face Gent.

With Ajax Amsterdam holding a six point lead over PSV in the Eredivisie Thulani Serero will hope his employers give him more opportunities to shine when they play Heerenveen on Friday night. Similarily Kamohelo Mokotjo will want some more game time when Feyenoord play Vitesse this weekend. The midfielder has only made one start this season in the Eredivisie.

After a 1-0 win over AIK on Wednesday Tokelo Rantie's Malmo FF will want to continue their winning ways when they play Oster on Monday night. Rantie has returned from his slight injury and started against AIK. May Mahlangu's Helsingborg will also be in action when they travel to play Brommapojkana on Sunday.
