Eagles assistant coach reflects on a good season start


Super Eagles assistant coach Ntsoakele Motholo believes that his side has shown a great character as they lie number one in stream A of the Free State ABC Motsepe League.

The Bethlehem-based side has amassed 20 points from nine outings.

Eagles look to finish on top of the table and advance to the national playoffs with a mathematical advantage over the chasing pack including Mangaung Unite, who have two games in hand but no maximum points guaranteed.

“The more games we play come in handy for us reason being the boys get to understand the philosophy that the technical team wants them to play, that is why the results are looking good,” said Motholo.

The side scores as much as it concedes with an average of 2.2 goals per match and has only managed to keep three clean sheets thus far. However, they aim to fix their defence force to avoid conceding cheap goals moving forward.

“We create a lot of scoring chances hence the boys manage to score more than two goals each and every game played, we just need to work on ‘smaller nyana’ (very few) mistakes we experienced in the past few games. Nonetheless, our performance is very good and the team is gelling quite well,” he added.

Thabo Tsutsulupa’s boys will lock horns with Central University of Technology at the Bethlehem Show Ground on the 24th of April after a well-deserved rest from the Easter holidays.
