TS Galaxy FC has vowed to give Orlando Pirates a good run for their money.
The two sides will square off in the Diski Challenge tomorrow at 10am. This titanic battle is scheduled to be staged at Tsakane Stadium.
After three games, the Rockets have registered three points while suffering two defeats (against Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs).
Our only victory was away from home against Bloemfontein Celtic in Free State.
Our Co-coach, Phuphu Mohlaba is expecting a tricky encounter against the Sea Robbers.
“Tomorrow (Saturday), we look forward to our game against Orlando Pirates. It is our first official home Stadium in Tsakane Stadium. We look forward to a very challenging game. Historically, they are a very good side. They are a tough opponent to play against. It fits exactly to the objectives of this team which is to challenge and stimulate every player to get to the best of their abilities,” Mohlaba detailed.
The Rockets suffered back to back defeats at the expense of Chiefs and Swallows in our previous two encounters.
“In terms of expectations, the first thing is application of what we’ve been working on during the week which is to see them express themselves technically at the higher level in terms of returning the ball, moving the ball, taking chances and scoring. We look forward to that. The other expectations from them it is to exact themselves as much as they can to give everything. Obviously physically, it is a bit difficult because there was a break in between. We expect them to give their all and that will give us information of where we are,” Mohlaba elaborated.
The Young Rockets will be looking to get back to winning ways and start the new year on a high note by getting victory.
“It’s been a good training week in terms of the improvements of the boys. We’ve seen them making a lot lips and bounce at training. We trust that tomorrow (Saturday), we will see a very good performance.” Mohlaba explained.
