Sunday Observer - - SPORT -

The Sih­langu as­sis­tant men­tor thanked his troops for show­ing com­mit­ment fol­low­ing their 3-0 win over Tam­buti FC at the Somhlolo Na­tional Sta­dium yes­ter­day. “I am happy with the per­for­mance of my play­ers who con­tin­ued to ded­i­cate them­selves in all the games that we have played, in­clud­ing to­day (yes­ter­day) against Tam­buti. The boys now un­der­stand my phi­los­o­phy and we will con­tinue work­ing hard in the up­com­ing matches.” “We are not go­ing to put our­selves in any form of pres­sure but we will take it one game

at a time,” he said. Mean­while, his Tam­buti coun­ter­part Alou Badara at­trib­uted the loss to lapse in con­cen­tra­tion from his charges. “I think we played well but we gave away three soft goals due to some de­fen­sive er­rors from my play­ers who are still on a learn­ing phase. Green Mamba used their ex­pe­ri­ence to their ad­van­tage as they forced my young

play­ers to make mis­takes at the back which I be­lieve would be rec­ti­fied in the fu­ture.” “We will pull our­selves up and focus on the re­main­ing games of the league,” he said. The Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices side clinched the E350 000 first round in­cen­tive in style through goals from Mthunzi ‘Xavi’ Mkhontfo, Musa Dlamini and Mcol­isi Mkhontfo.
