NRB determined to shine
‘I AM disappointed with my team’s loss on Sunday, but I’m not disheartened or angry.
‘We will put this one behind us and take our excellent form into the remaining matches.’
Generous words from Richards Bay FC head coach Jean Losciuto in the wake of a dubious 2-2 draw away to Mthatha Bucks on Sunday.
Not only were they called back to take a free kick after Thabiso Nkoana had scored a goal, they also conceded a highly debatable penalty and the referee’s watch allowed the hosts to equalise in an astounding ninth minute of extra time.
‘My boys were brilliant on Sunday and I can’t criticise their performance,’ said Losciuto.
However, their dominance in matches of late once again did translate into the three-pointers they require to move out of the relegation zone.
That should all change on Sunday when they take on Super Eagles, a team that is in penultimate place on the National First Division log.
The fan support has been excellent at the uMhlathuze Stadium in recent weeks and once again they could make a vital difference in terms of motivation.
Kick-off is at 3.30pm.
21 April vs Black Leopards (away). 29 April vs Ubuntu (home)
6 May vs Mbombela (away).
