We will win the league

| April 25, 2013

Mochudi Centre Chiefs head coach, Madinda Ndlovu expressed satisfaction after playing a 2-2 draw with a resurgent Township Rollers at the SSKB Stadium on Saturday. Chiefs are currently on position two with 47 points in the log standings while their main rival Nico United are perched at the top with 48 points. The Zimbabwean mentor says he is confident that he will retain the league championship because their eight remaining games include minnows like BR Highlanders and Miscelleneous.

Ndlovu, who recently suffered a heavy 0-6 loss to DR Congo side TP Mazembe says his charges are slowly regaining their match fitness after losing their recent games in the beMOBILE premier league and the Mascom Top 8 tournament. The Saturday game was a tough one that saw Township Rollers striker Onalethata Tshekiso proving that he still had fire in his belly leading his team to a 2-2 draw against the Mochudi side. A robust Tshekiso wasted little time in the first half when he scored an early first goal of the match and continued to attack and helping create a second goal scored by Maano Ditshupo.

It was a game that saw Rollers showing flashes of brilliance with Sekhana ‘Nandos’ Koko also making impressive runs in attack – leading the charge in a game his team almost won 2-1 before Jerome Ramatlhakwane scored a controversial equaliser in the dying minutes. With veteran coach Mike Sithole on board, Tshekiso is set to lead Rollers attack on Gaborone United in the second leg of the Mascom Top 8 semi final this weekend. Speaking after the beMOBILE premier league encounter on Saturday, Sithole refuted talk that he had brought Rollers back a competitive team in the Premier league. “The team just needed motivation, that’s all,” he said.

The Zambian mentor who was roped in after a string of poor results from Dodo said the players at the team knew him well, adding that the relationship was mutual as he also understood them. The Saturday game ended in controversy as Rollers fans were seething in protest against some of the decisions taken by the referee, believing he had cost them the game.
