Jomo Cosmos must really look at its tactics in AWAY games.I have watched this team, home and away. Its AWAY tactics or approach are not for the teams wanting to win the league. We scored in only two AWAY games and failed to hit the net in other six AWAY games. All our 5 defeats have been 1-0. Showing that our intent to score is not venomous. As a big and pedigreed club, Jomo Cosmos must be destructive home and away. There should be no difference as we are in NFD. Only in PSL there can be a difference. Last seasoon, we won 1 AWAY game. In that PSL season, we won only one AWAY game. We have to gets points AWAY if we want to win promotion!!! As simple as that. Highlands Park and Kaizer Chiefs won away today.
