Debswana-backed Jwaneng Galaxy continues to make their intentions clear as they charge towards winning the league title for the first time. The Jwaneng based team is walking the talk, currently in second place in the Botswana Football League, with only two points separating them from leaders, Gaborone United.
Speaking in an interview this week, team spokesperson Tankiso Morake said it is not an easy task to compete against Gaborone United, "Our draw means that the gap narrows between us and the teams chasing us, but we are closer to the leaders."
He added that the task for them is to continue fighting, winning their matches, and chasing the leaders. The Galaxy of stars takes on Extension Gunners this weekend, and Morake has stressed the importance of the fixture.
"It is tough to play a team that hasn't been doing well. You don't know what to expect. They will be sitting deep and denying us the channels to play through, but we will fight for better results."
He added that the pressure will definitely be there in the fixture, at least for both teams, since they are chasing the leaders, and Gunners are trying to avoid relegation.
"Township Rollers and Orapa United are just behind us, so we ought to be consistent in this marathon. We need to pace ourselves properly, have the patience and persistence to remain behind and take the lead at the right time."
As Galaxy hosts Gunners at the Galaxy Stadium this week , league leaders, Gaborone United travel to Serowe for a game against Morupule Wanderers at the Serowe Sports Complex. Chasers Township Rollers and Orapa United will also be in action. Popa visits the struggling Sowa Flamingoes at the Sowa Town Council Stadium, while Orapa United faces the bottom of the league side, Holy Ghost.
