Lindelani Ladies FC defender Lungelo Msweli is adamant her side are on course for promotion in the Sasol KwaZulu Natal League this season.
The KwaMashu outfit defeated contenders Westville United Ladies 2-1 in a top of the table clash last week, where Msweli’s heroics were remarkable for the team.
The 24-year-old, who has played in the league for some seasons told FARPost that the experience she has gained has helped her and the team to thrive this season.
“The level of competitiveness in this league has helped me a lot, because I’ve managed to play against different teams.
“We are where we are today because of listening to our coaches, determination and also the experience I have has helped me and the team in achieving positive results.”
“I play according to my strength and if the coaches are happy with my performance, which means the team is doing well.
“We are encouraged to be on top of the log and it’s a motivating factor as we look to succeed this season.”
“As a team we have one goal, which is to go to play-offs and we can only go there by maintaining our good performances every match,” said Msweli.
The KwaMashu-born center back also emphasized the significance of staying fit as a team, which she says played a huge part in their great form this season.
“I’ve learnt that you can’t play the whole match if you are unfit. If you look at the game we played last week against Westville, it needed fitness.”
“Everything starts in training, taking serious your training helps a lot. In our team we train everyday and we learn from each and every match we play.”
“I know that we’ve won all our matches this season, but we’ve learnt a lot from those matches and we want to keep on improving as a team,” concluded Msweli.
