Black Forest (Magoleng) Head Coach Reetsang Letlole believes that his charges need maximum points in their remaining seven (7) games if they are to realize their ambition of surviving relegation.
Magoleng are currently 15th on the log, five (5) points off safety. Their precarious position was solidified by a 2-0 defeat to Police XI yesterday (Monday) which condemned them to their 16th loss of the season. The highest loss tally by any team in the Premier League this season, after 23 games.
Magoleng got into the encounter knowing that nothing but maximum points would suffice and dully applied themselves in the game. The Mankgodi based lads matched the Jungle Kings in the opening exchanges before Hendrick Moyo struck for Police XI. Tapiwa Gaebolae struck midway through the second half to clinch a victory for the “Jungle Kings”.
“In our current situation, we need three (3) points every game”, highlighted Letlole.
“Our approach was positive but in the last third we created chances and did not convert, a football game is about converting chances and that really cost us. If we could convert our chances then we would not be speaking in this state, as we lost the game”, lamented Letlole.
Letlole further rued their missed opportunities, “Our opponents did not create many chances, they had half chances just like us but they converted theirs. Their only clear chance was the second goal but the whole game they did not create dangerous chances. The match was evenly balanced”.
“The position Police (XI) find themselves in is not the same as ours, every game we play we know that we have to get points which builds pressure on the youngsters players that we are playing with. There was a chance in the first half which was delivered from the right wing to the left, it is a clear chance which if it was a mature player we could have converted”, concluded Letlole.
