After last weeks drubbing against Maccabi, the Gold City Giants played better and gave it their all but were pipped 3-2 against the Kwa Thema based Valencia on Saturday.
The teams went into halftime at 1-1 with Theo Mbiyzozo on target for Aces but two second half goals from Valencia with another goal from Mbiyozo, his 12th of the season, saw Aces lose their 13th of this season.
Next weekends game will be another tough match against the 15th positioned Tembisa Sports Centre, who are staring at relegation.
The Gauteng stream of the ABC Motsepe league is hotting up and with 5 games left, its virtually a two-horse race between Maccabi, who lost to All Stars, and JDR who kept up the pressure with a 3-0 win over Vaal Pro's. JDR now find themselves three points behind Maccabi with a game in hand.
