Rollers Face Miscellaneous In Serowe


Fresh from a morale boosting victory in the Gaborone derby, Township Rollers travel to the Central Distrcit where the Blues take on Miscellaneous in a BTC Premiership match scheduled for the Serowe Sports Complex on Wednesday night.
With nine wins and two draws in their first eleven matches of the season, Rollers have made their best ever start to a premier league campaign, and Popa interim head coach Thabo Motang has hailed his team for the team ethic they have displayed so far.
“We are doing well because the team has managed to gel,” Motang told on Tuesday as the Blues took to the A1. “If you look at our last match against Gaborone United, we created many chances while restricting our opponents’ attacking movement; we did not allow them to trouble our goalkeeper. We are not converting most of our chances, something we will correct. But we are playing well, we are dominating our games, and we keep going- we are not scoring one goal then sitting back; rather we are dominating teams and we keep going forward to attack. Technically, we are in a good position with a good balance of defence and attack.”
After two wins, four draws and four defeats, Miscellaneous are on position ten on the log with ten points, but Motang does not want to read too much into his opponents’ log position.
“Remember this is the team that defeated us in Lobatse last season. We are not going to take them lightly, they are a team with potential/ But we are going out there determined to make sure we put enough effort in order to win. We will have an attacking formation that is will make use of our own strength and counter how Miscellaneous play,” Motang said.
This midweek fixture is sandwiched between Rollers weekend victory over GU and the upcoming top of the table clash with Orapa United, but Motang says team selection will not factor in the past weekend’s intensity or the important of the upcoming fixture.
“We are going to take the league one game at a time, we are fully focused on Miscellaneous, we will pick the best side to get us the result, and then thereafter we will start thinking about the upcoming game,” Motang said.
The match is scheduled to start at 19:00.
