The result of hard work - Notsi
After beating Sandawana 5-3 in the quarter-final first leg of the Top8, Coach Leslie Notsi said the win was a result of the commitment and hunger of his players.
He said this during the media briefing on Tuesday afternoon where he praised the team for sticking to the plan. “We knew they were going to be tough opponents because we had beaten them twice in the league, so the plan was to score early before they settle and we managed to do that,” he said.
Kick4Life scored 4 goals in the first 20 minutes of the game, with Thapelo Tale opening the scoring in the 3rd minute, before Lesoetsa, Mothoana and Ntoya-Malonga added the other goals. The result means that Kick4Life have the chance of progressing to the next round, but that comes with not allowing Sandawana to score at least 3 goals in the second leg.
The coach went on to say it is important for his team to be consistent in their recent good run in the Premier League, as they look to return to action this weekend. Kick4Life welcome Sky Battalion on Sunday, who are having a good season in the top flight.
“We suffered our first loss in the Premier League in the hands of SK, so to us it says that we need to apply more effort, and of course to be consistent in the league,” Notsi noted.
