Following their 2-0 drubbing by Stellenbosch Football Club last week, Black Leopards FC have shifted their focus to their next opponent, Cape Town All Stars whom they will meet at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday.
Berry Ramunenyiwa, Club Spokesperson is of the opinion that they should have won the match against Stellenbosch and close the eight point gap created by the log leaders Thanda Zulu Royals. Royals are currently at the top of the National First Division (NFD) with 41 points while Leopards sits on the second position with 33 points.
He urged all supporters to rally behind the team. “We are nothing without our supporters. We need them at our home matches and that is where we must win all the games. We have also made arrangements for senior citizens and learners to get a free entrance to the stadium,” Ramunenyiwa said.
Asked if the burglary at their offices last weekend had left any psychological dent of the team’s progress in the National First Division (NFD) Ramunenyiwa pointed that they had put the incident behind them. “We have left everything to the Team Manager because our focus is on winning the NFD title and we won t let anything stand in our way,” Ramunenyiwa said.
