GWP Friends FC coach Dominic Isaacs has set his sights on winning promotion to the GladAfrica Championship with his side this season.
The Durban-based side who are campaigning in the ABC Motsepe KwaZulu-Natal League are currently fourth on the log after losing 1-0 to Umvoti United FC in Greytown late last month.
However, Isaacs is adamant they can go all the way with the squad at his disposal and the teams that are competing for the league still have to face each other.
“Look it’s far from over, they (Umvoti United FC) still have to come to us in the second round, we still have to play Summerfield Dynamos and Umvoti United will face Summerfield Dynamos so it’s gonna be very tight and interesting but we look forward to it – we will fight till the end,” said Isaacs.
The former Kaizer Chiefs defender knows what is at stake and all he wants is to come out tops at the end of the season and he trusts his team’s capabilities. “Look there is no need to get a mandate from the chairman, I put pressure on myself I want to win the league.
“I do have the quality, I mean it’s not like I can go to the market and buy players we just have to work and prepare the best we can for each and every match but obviously somethings are just out of your control,” continued Isaacs.
The 38-year-old is worried about a third hand that seems to be getting involved in some matches and influence the outcome of the match, but he just wants his team to focus on playing football. “The players have tried their best but unfortunately there are things we cannot control, all I’m asking for is a fair match and I don’t need any favors. But I have heard stories (allegedly about referees) and I have had the experience, but it’s ok,” concluded Isaacs.
