Relatives are on track
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.”
