Polokwane City have expressed satisfaction regarding coach, Boebie Solomons' progress thus far. Rise and Shine will welcome Kaizer Chiefs tomorrow night at Peter Mokaba Stadium, and the PSL rookies will be looking for their fifth win at home.
City have played 20 games under coach Boebie Solomons, winning five, drawing six and losing nine matches along the way. However, they have a great home record having accumulated four wins, one loss and managing five draws.
In his 21st game against the Naturena-based club, Solomons will aim to continue with the good run of form. His team is inspired by the fact that they’ve beaten both Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns at home.
Although their away record is not satisfactory, Rise and Shine recently managed to win one game away when they beat University of Pretoria 2-1.
Speaking to Soccer Laduma, club PRO, Patrick Baloyi, says they are happy with Solomons’ work so far.
“He is the coach who was not given a chance before he took the job, we knew he was the right coach as he knew the culture of Limpopo and players from this side of town. We’re on the verge of surviving relegation and we believe he can win the remaining games and escape to see the club surviving. He restored professionalism and instilled discipline together with fighting ability in our players. Mostly, the player who benefitted the most is Puleng Tlolane, he scored good goals under Solomons. We aim to keep him for a long time and with Chiefs coming, we believe we’ll surprise them, we beat Sundowns and Pirates, why not Chiefs?,” said Baloyi.
City are placed at position 14 with 24 points after 26 games, and the game gets underway at 19:30.
