Polokwane City coach, Boebie Solomons, is happy his side managed to register a second win away from home this season.
Rise and Shine beat Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 yesterday courtesy of a brace by the Malawian forward, Esau Kanyenda.
Solomons revealed to the crew that they played very well, and heaped praise on his players as they continued to fight very hard for the three points.
“We had so many scoring opportunities in the first half-an-hour and that was a sign of good things to come. I’m happy for Kanyenda for netting twice, and I believe he could’ve scored more because he missed another two. It was unfortunate for Vukile (Mngqibisa) as he missed the penalty. He plays very well but it was unfortunate for him as the ball hit the upright. We created more scoring opportunities, and I’m happy for the three points,” said Mzala.
Despite bagging the three points, Rise and Shine remain IN position 14 with 27 points, and have two games remaining.
“We want to finish the season better, our aim is to collect points as much as we can you know. With the two games remaining, we need to do well. The self-belief is there, confidence and the will to fight, so I believe it’s possible that we’ll stay in the top-flight. My players are happy and have improved as the season progressed. They played well in our last few games, but we were unlucky. Winning our second game away has boosted us ahead of the two last games,” said Solomons.
The Polokwane-based club will face Moroka Swallows at home, and then travel to Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium to face SuperSport United to wrap their campaign.
