Polokwane City played to a 1-all draw against Free State Stars on Saturday night at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Rise and Shine are now getting ready to face University of Pretoria, and only have six games remaining to wrap up their league campaign. Speaking to the Siya crew, club PRO, Patrick Baloyi, said things are not looking rosy for the club but there’s hope.
“Things are not easy I must say, look at us, Golden Arrows and Free State Stars. We’re in the mix, we must pull all the stops and ensure we get 11 points from the remaining games. I’ve looked at the fixtures, and I see it’s not going to be easy but we’ve reached the 20-hour mark, and we can escape this situation.
“All the teams at the bottom of the log are faced with the current situation of tough fixtures. My biggest fear is that we haven’t done well away from home, but a win can definitely boost us. Our next game is against Tuks. We beat them 3-0 and obviously they’ll want to revenge that defeat. I’m glad Puleng Tlolane scored, he’s going to get better as our scorer, but senior players like Esau Kanyenda must also come to the party. After some losses, we managed to get a goal and we nearly won had we taken our chances. The PSL has surprises and anything can happen, I hope and believe we will survive,” said Baloyi.
Rise and Shine’s remaining games are against Tuks, Maritzburg United, Kaizer Chiefs, Mpumalanga Black Aces, Moroka Swallows and SuperSport United.
