Rel­a­tives are on track

Daily Dispatch - - Sport - MFUNDO PILISO mfun­dop@dis­patch.co.za

Rel­a­tives coach Mziyanda Lan­geni aims to main­tain their un­beaten run in the SAB League 2018-19 sea­son when they take on Swal­lows at Or­lando Sta­dium in Mdantsane on Satur­day.

With Bhisho Stars lead­ing the pack at the sum­mit of the log stand­ings with a bet­ter goal dif­fer­ence with nine points in the three games played so far, Rel­a­tives are hot on their heels with nine points as well, while Peace­mak­ers are at third po­si­tion also on nine points.

Last week­end Rel­a­tives beat Bea­con Bay Celtics 6-0 at the Ama­linda Fields, and away to Moscow United they won 20.

Lan­geni was hop­ing his charges can draw strength from those re­sults and col­lect max­i­mum points.

“We are hop­ing that those pos­i­tive re­sults can mo­ti­vate the boys to play with more en­ergy this week­end. I am sure they can.

“Be­cause those games were not dif­fi­cult but we just didn’t utilise all the clear cut chances we cre­ated. We sim­ply had to score, and that’s why we won with two goals in the sec­ond game we played last week­end.

“And keep­ing a clean slate is go­ing to be dif­fi­cult but we want to main­tain our po­si­tion and we’ll give it our best shot,” said Lan­geni.

He said he was ex­pect­ing to see im­prove­ment from their pre­vi­ous per­for­mances.

“It’s been four sea­sons we’ve played in this league and we feel that we need to fight for pro­mo­tion this sea­son.

“So that’s our goal and we are go­ing to try and get through the league first and then fo­cus on the next step.

“But it won’t be easy and we are work­ing on that, be­cause this league is like a marathon and it’s still early now.”
