Polokwane City hosts Wits this afternoon at Peter Mokaba to wrap up this season's league fixtures, coach Boebie Solomons, said it’s a tough one but they’re not scared.
Rise and Shine will face Gavin Hunt’s Students at the back of their 2-0 loss at the hands of Ajax Cape Town in Athlone last Friday.
“Wits is one of the best teams in the league and their coach has won three league titles. It’s going to be a tough one I must say. We respect Wits obviously but we don’t fear them. Be that as it may, we have to rise to the occasion because we’re playing at home. We need points and home is hunting ground. We prepared very well but the only downside is that we can’t use their players like Tlou (Molekwane) and Sandile (Sibande).
“We’ve got back up though to cover for their places and I just hope my players will raise their hands and deliver. Rofhiwa Tshikovhi is doubtful due to an ankle injury and we’re closer to the game so we just have to push harder.” added Solomons.
City is placed at position 14 after 19 games with 19 points and they’ll be eying a win as they want to escape relegation, this encounter will resume at 15:30.
