Tsotetsi wants all-out at­tack

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT - Si­bongiseni Gumbi

Mac­cabi FC coach Mokete Tsotetsi (above) is happy that his team are not re­liant on one player for goals de­spite hav­ing one of the most­feared strik­ers in the Na­tional First Di­vi­sion.

Tsotetsi will hope their well is full again this af­ter­noon so they can draw some goals as they look to col­lect three points when they host Uthon­gathi FC at Dob­sonville Sta­dium.

“The plan is to have ev­ery at­tack­ing player have their name on the score­sheet this sea­son. It is good for the team that we are not over-re­liant on one or two play­ers for the goals,” he said.

For­mer Or­lando Pi­rates mid­fielder Le­bo­gang Mokoena was the lat­est to add his name to the scor­ers’ charts with the first in the 2-1 win at Real Ea­gles and Mokete said he was elated for him as he had been work­ing hard.

“I am happy for “Cheese”, he has been work­ing hard and his con­tri­bu­tion has been no­table and com­mend­able. Now that he has opened his ac­count, I hope more will come,” said the for­mer Kaizer Chiefs de­fender.

In Uthon­gathi, Mac­cabi face a side who are not easy to pre­dict and who have an ex­pe­ri­enced coach in Johnny Fer­reira.

“It is go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult game. They will be look­ing for three points. But we also want these points es­pe­cially af­ter win­ning away. We aim to win all our home games,” said Tsotetsi.

Jomo Cos­mos – who were held to a draw at home by lowly Ubuntu Cape Town last week – are mean­while away to lead­ers Stel­len­bosch, also this af­ter­noon.

It will be a dif­fi­cult game for Ezenkosi against a side who have striker Iqraam Rayn­ers in top form and in free-scor­ing mode lately. But Jomo Sono’s teams are al­ways known to be stub­born at the back and they could just spring a sur­prise in the Mother City.

Uni­ver­sity of Pre­to­ria will hope to put be­hind them last week­end’s em­bar­rass­ing 3-0 home de­feat when they take on TS Gal­axy at Kameel­riv­ier Sta­dium in KwaNde­bele to­mor­row af­ter­noon.
