On a winless streak
We have really done well so far in the last three outings in which we have faced strong opponents. The team has generally improved and played well, but luck has not been on our side. The winless streak is a concern but not a worry because I believe we will get the results pretty soon.
Regarding the City Stars tie:
We are going to face yet another strong opponent on Saturday. They are currently second on the log and in good form, but going with our style of play and the level of improvement that we have gained, I am optimistic that this is going to be our turning point. We respect our opponents, but if we can convert our chances into goals, then I have no doubt we will carry the day.
On top, half chances.
The league is competitive because the point gap is not wide. One simply has to take full advantage of their opportunities, and I believe this has been our main undoing because we haven’t been as clinical as we should be in the final third. I am optimistic that once my players take more personal responsibility by converting the numerous chances that we will create in the remaining nine matches, then a top-half finish is very much possible.
Injury Status Report:
We have one injury concern with David Kingatua ahead of Saturday. He suffered a meniscus injury, and we hope to have him back soon.
