Tshilo: Impressed By Teammates

Polokwane City captain, Thapelo Tshilo, has expressed his confidence ahead of their second round campaign against Platinum Stars.

The skipper was speaking to the club’s website after their friendlies against Wits and University of Pretoria. 'Rise and Shine' won 1-0 against Gavin Hunt’s side, and also claimed a win against Steve Barker’s team.

The former Jomo Cosmos, Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns defender, known as Chappies in football circles, said his side will be ready to face Dikwena on Tuesday, February 4.

“The friendlies against Wits and University of Pretoria in Johannesburg is what I can call a good camp. It was important that we do well in these practice matches and judging by the number of matches we played, it was a good workout. The important thing is to get the team gelling when we start in less than two weeks and as the leader, I am impressed,” said Tshilo.

The PSL rookies have a week to prepare before taking on the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout reigning champions. The 28-year old Boksburg-born, said the crucial thing is to ensure that they don’t lose points at home.

“Stars are a decent team and their success over the past two years shows that patience is a virtue. I foresee this team going places but first we must ensure that we starve off relegation as it remains a priority,” added the captain.

Although City has parted ways with players such as striker, Keaketswe Moloi, who is set to join Mochudi Centre Chiefs, and Mirror Simanyana, who has joined Gaborone United in Botswana, the club has not confirmed the signings of Sandile Sibande from Wits and Jabu Maluleke from SuperSport United.
