This season’s PSL rookies, Polokwane City, have lost five of their last six outings, and their dream to stay in the elite league, hangs in the balance.
But to coach Boebie Solomons, there's still a chance they may survive relegation, saying there's no need to panic.
“There is no need to get worried as it is expected of the team to be in that area as rookie to the top flight league. The relegation zone is not good but as rookies, it was expected. The players are aware of what is at stake and even when we lost Tlou Molekwane, Moffat Mdluli and Puleng Tlolane, we still have a decent team to forge forward with,” said Solomons.
Rise and Shine are placed at position 15 after 23 games with 19 points, and their next game is against Free State Stars at home who are placed just above City with 20 points after 22 games.
However, the former Bloemfontein Celtic assistant coach remains optimistic about survival, and has belief in his players.
There are nine games remaining for the season and the Polokwane-based side needs to start collecting maximum points as a matter of urgency.
University of Pretoria (away), Maritzburg United (home) and Kaizer Chiefs (home) are City’s next three fixtures.
