With the Eastern Cape ABC Motsepe League almost done, there are two teams that are left to contest for the spot in the ABC Motsepe League National playoffs.
Bizana-based outfit Spears of the Nation who have not lost a match this season will take on BCM Stars in a two-legged final, starting on Saturday 05 June 2021 at East London.
Spears coach James Madidilane has revealed to FARPost that consistency has been key for his team throughout the season and they intend to keep it.
“Look we’ve been consistent like, if we go to this match and perform, be consistent in terms of playing and the attitude being right.”
“I’d say I don’t see any problem having to go and face BCM. Like I said, if we can be consistent like we have been doing throughout, then I believe that we’ll have the positive results,” said Madidilane.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic defender is wary of complacency from his team and has emphasized the significance of respecting their opponents.
“But if we go to this match not applying ourselves accordingly then we’ll have a problem.”
“We’ve got to give respect to the opposition and our approach has to be as good as it was when we played Amavarara FC, when we played Siyanda.”
“It’s matches where I’d say that it tested our character, even the Sibiya All Stars game.”
“So it’s more on the attitude and on the performance on the day but I belive that we gonna go to this match with our best, like we’ve done in other matches.”
The 39-year-old coach is also aware of the threat posed by their opponents and believes they did not win their stream by accident.
“I believe that BCM believe that they have a good team, they’ve had a good run, they may have lost some matches there and there.”
“So for its just to continue with the good run that we have been having in this match, I believe if we do that we are not gonna have much of a problem,” concluded Madidilane.
