News coming out of the Polokwane City camp is that midfielder, Maxwell Molala, believes his club will avoid the drop.
Rise and Shine are fresh from a 1-1 stalemate with Free State Stars at home, and the player says his teammates were left to rue their cruel luck again. Their next game is away to the University of Pretoria at Tuks Stadium on Saturday.
The midfield anchor man believes that with a bit of luck throughout the campaign, City would be sitting higher up the table.
The PSL rookies are sat at position 15 with 20 points after 24 games, and have six games to go. The Marble Hall-born player says they’ll do anything to stay in the league.
“So far we have done well, but luck has not been on our side. There is nothing wrong with the team and we are playing as a unit. It is just the final touch that we have to work on. As soon as we start creating our own luck, we will rescue our situation. I think that with coach Boebie Solomons on our side, we still have hope. He is a brilliant coach and knows what he is doing. To me, we as players just need to give our best and the results will start coming. We will fight until the end and hopefully we survive.
“We are playing Tuks and I think that will be our first victory away from home. The players are well motivated and have to use this game as our turning point before the season ends. If we can just peak now, we can attempt a last minute blast away from the relegation zone. Come next season, we will be playing our second term in the top flight league. I trust my team and we will do well,” added the 28-year-old.
