The Premier Soccer League club live to fight another day in their quest for survival in the South African top flight

Maritzburg United defeated SuperSport United 3-1 in an amazing fighting display to keep their hopes of remaining in the PSL alive.

United are still at the bottom of the table, but this victory sees them just a point behind three clubs Black Leopards, Free State Stars and Chippa United. Baroka FC has two points more than United.

Maritzburg play Baroka in their final game of the season next week and if they win this away game, while the other three clubs fail to win, then the KwaZulu-Natal club will avoid relegation.. 

That would mark a remarkable turn around for their head coach Eric Tinkler, who was tasked with a near impossible job of saving the club this year.

One can get a sense of the mood of the Maritzburg United fans' feelings when the club went a goal up against SuperSport. Siphokazi Malinga took the following video from the Harry Gwala Stadium which showcases the wonderful atmosphere.

Elsewhere Banyana Banyana are getting ready for the Women's World Cup, and here you can see them participate in a unique video with South African star actress Pearl Thusi.

You can watch how the South African women's team sang for Thusi below.
