- Ecco and Chiefs meet again
After they failed to find the back of the net in Tse Di Tonaover the weekend, Chiefs and Eccowill fight it out in a bid to make it to the semi-finals of the Coke Cup.
Destiny has locked the two clubs together in a cup trilogy as the quarterfinal clash In Molepolole on Saturday comes sandwiched between their two Mascom 8 encounters.
Their past cup game attracted around four thousand spectators and P85 000 cash was made from gate takings as the Francistown based team keeps hopes alive of bringing some cheer to the north.
Speaking to Voice Sport this week, MamojaDiskie Mentor AtsheleMolapi said that the team had learnt lessons from last week’s encounter, and had a game plan to unsettle their table-topping opponents.
“The cup is a gamble so it just depends on who takes their chances on the day.
Since I coached this team I played six away games and won all of them, so I am confident of keeping up my record,” Molapi said.The coach will be without striker LovemoreMurirwawho picked up an ankle injury last weekend, but otherwise is likely to keep faith with the same players.
Magosi Public Relations Officer ClifordMogomotsi said Mamoja’s game plan of not conceding has worked for them as they denied them the advantage of away goal in the two leg Mascom 8 clash, but Saturday’s game would be a do or die affair.
He admits Ecco could have won the game in the first half because they dominated especially in midfield.“We anticipated a hard game and got one, but we will
have to put that result behind us and take our chances on Saturday. Arnold Chaka is back from Zimbabwe Worriors duty and we expect his presence to bring some change,” said Mogomotsi.
