Mamelodi Sundowns take on Polokwane City tonight in another clash that will surely bring some entertaining football as both sides are at different ends of the log standings, City is fighting to save their Premiership status and Masandawana are keeping the pressure on log leaders.
“We have checked that they played two systems. They’ve been playing four at the back, but now lately they’ve played five for the back. They are desperate, like we are, you know. We’ll see how it goes. But, you know, they’re tough. Look, there’s no team that’s in the bubble you can see you can easily beat anybody. We are just beating each other. You never know where it’s going and who’s going to beat who. And I think it’s the best time for bookmakers now because this thing is really unpredictable and it can go wherever it goes,” said Coach Pitso Mosimane.
The Brazilian suffered a loss to Baroka in their last outing and missed on an opportunity to capitalize as Kaizer Chiefs slipped up after losing their game against Bidvest Wits. Coach Pitso Mosimane shared his thoughts on the matter by saying “Yeah, we had one small chance that lasted for a few hours, but we didn’t take the chance. So, yeah, we have never been in the driving seat but you never know because we are beating each other and the draws and everything is possible. So we keep going until the fat lady sings. As I said earlier, the championship is not a Chiefs and Sundowns match. I said it and it shows that. I think this one will go to the last line of the last game.”
Polokwane City are currently rooted at the bottom and will be no pushovers tonight as they are fighting for their survival and will surely give Masandawana a run for their money. Coach Pitso Mosimane knows exactly what he is coming up against and acknowledged that by saying, “It’s tough stuff, you’re facing, people who want to win, people who even if they only get one point, they will cherish it. And then we will need maximum points. Because if you don’t get maximum points, how do you expect to win the league? So, yeah, very difficult and very emotional. You saw the Baroka fight and how they celebrated after that match.”
“Yeah, this is the way it is. We also won against Arrows. We were celebrating, to be honest. But yeah, it’s part of life. It’s part of football. It’s our time as coaches to stress. We do stress a lot. We are human beings. You know, a lot of mistakes are made on the pitch by us, by players, by referees. Yeah. This is the way it is. What is beautiful is the beauty of football,” concluded Coach Pitso Mosimane.
