Despite their pulsating form in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Polokwane City Football Club is not thinking of winning the PSL title.
City is sitting comfortably in 3rd position of the league with 26 points after 16 home and away matches of the current season.
They need 42 points from their last remaining 14 matches in order to clinch the coveted title.
The club’s chief operations officer, Tincy Tema applauded his players for the hard work and commitment they showed since the beginning of the season but emphasised that they were not thinking about the league title. “Winning the league will be nice but we are not thinking about that.
We don’t want to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure. We will take every match as it comes with the aim of collecting maximum points from that match,” Tema said while commenting on their 3-2 victory against Amazulu Football Club at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
He said their match against log leaders, Bidvest Wits Football Club set for Peter Mokaba Stadium on 20 January will be a tough battle. “We beat them 1-0 in the first round of the league and I am sure they want revenge. We can assure our fans that we won’t allow them to walk over us, we will fight for three points,” Tema said.
