City’s Top Eight Aspirations Take A Knock

Polokwane City’s top eight took a serious knock following their 2-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Platinum Stars this past Saturday.

The Siya crew reported earlier that the Limpopo outfit had aspirations of finishing the current campaign with a top eight spot. Rise and Shine are currently in 13th spot with 30 points having played 26 matches. With only four leagues game left on the calendar the team still remains hopeful of finishing the league on a high.

“The defeat was not ideal and it puts even more pressure on us to win the remaining games we have left in order to be in with a chance at (a) top eight spot,” said the club’s veteran midfielder and captain Jabu Maluleke.

“We want this for ourselves as players, therefore, we will have to take accountability. The goal is to play in the top eight and we have it in us to take the team there,” added the jersey number 8.

Rise and Shine are in with a mathematical chance of qualifying for a spot in the top half of the log. The best position that the Limpopo based side can finish in is 42 points should they win their remaining four games and amass the maximum 12 points and hope that the above teams such as AmaZulu, Golden Arrows and Bidvest Wits stumble and lose points in their remaining fixtures.

City’s next fixtures include Wits, Cape Town City, Free State Stars and Chippa United.
