After losing their game against Kaizer Chiefs last Wednesday, Polokwane City went back to the drawing board in preparation of their upcoming game against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Sunday at home.
'Rise and Shine' have now played six matches under the guidance of Boebie Solomons, winning two games, drawing two and losing two, however, the Cape Town-born coach has made a huge difference since joining the side.
The Siya crew caught up with Rise and Shine forward, Sphesihle Nzimande, ahead of their tussle with AmaZayoni next Sunday, who says they have planned well and will work hard to meet their targets.
“We have games where we aim to get maximum points, a game like this one where we‘ll meet Aces, is a must win for us. We have to recover following our disappointing loss to Chiefs last week, we have to pull our socks up, dust ourselves up and move on. I believe we have enough time to prepare as we have the whole week. We’ve identified our errors and we’re working on rectifying them,“ said the Durban-born forward.
The former Golden Arrows striker revealed to the Siya crew that his team lacked experience when they lost 4-1 to Amakhosi last week.
“We were not a bad team on the day but the fact that our team has players who lack experience in the top flight and the weather made it difficult for us to compete against Chiefs. However, that’s water under the bridge, we are now focusing on the Aces game. Our aim was to get at least a point, not to lose against Chiefs but these things happen in football. I think the arrival of the coach made our job easier, he communicates well with us so I see a brighter future for us as a team. We’ll fight and get more points for the team,”
