‘Everybody keeps reminding us that we are at the bottom’


After finishing in the top 5 in the Absa Premiership last season coupled with the 17 points they collected in their first 8 League matches this season, the current Polokwane City League position came unexpected.  

City were considered one of the dark horse for the title and or at least a top 4 finish.  

Five months later the tables have turned for the worse for the Limpopo side who are now at the bottom of the log following 9 straight league defeats.  

But ahead of their crunch league encounter against Chippa United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday, coach Clinton Larsen says they don’t have to be reminded about their bad situation.  

“You can’t neglect the fact that we are where we are. Everybody reminds you, the person in the streets, the person at the Garage, every supporter will remind you where you are and it’s the reality of the situation we are in” Larsen told FARPost.co.za  

“We don’t have to be reminded because we know but for us is work as usual. Our focus is on Chippa, get that out of the way then we focus on Pirates but like I said the start of the next 15 games is going to be very important as we have seen how close it is from position 7,8 down to 16, very tight” 

Larsen further adds that their target in their last 15 games is to collect 20 out of 45 points.  

“This next period of 6 to 7 games is important for us to pick up points. We have done a simple calculation 5 draws and 5 wins its 20 points and we are safe, that is the simple target we have given the players”   

As this Publication reported last month, the match has been moved from the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium to the World Cup stadia after the Old Precinct was left damaged following a Music Concert. Kick-off is at 15:30.
