Coach Dikgang Kgosane said they moved their training sessions from Ramotswa because it was difficult for players who stay in Gaborone to travel to Ramotswa.

He said because of late afternoon traffic delays, players always arrived late in Ramotswa. Spiking Stars are third on the log with 47 points. They have played 19 games, losing five. They continue their top four-finish quest over the weekend when they meet Victory Seekers in Lobatse.

“With us there is no big or small team,” Kgosane told Mmegi Sport. He believes that they have trained hard enough to beat Victory Seekers.

The team is oozing with confidence ahead of the Victory Seekers clash after beating one of the league’s powerhouses Police 3-0 last weekend. Kgosane’s dream is to finish the league in the top four spot. Considering their current position, the coach believes their dream is achievable.

“We have already played and beaten big teams like Mafolofolo and Police. The two teams that we are afraid of now are Kutlwano and BDF VI,” he said.

He said doing well is good motivation for the players who will not be tempted to leave the team. The signing of attacker Bokao Nagafela has also changed the complexion of the team, which has become the surprise package in this year’s league.

In other games in Lobatse, after losing a crucial game against Spiking Stars, Police will aim for a win against Prisons and Mafolofolo. Police is placed 6th on the log and is expected to fight hard as the top four-finish battle intensifies.

The Serowe based Tanian will have a double date against Prisons and Victory Seekers. In Francistown, Diphatsa will hope to extend its lead, taking advantage of second placed BDF VI’s inactivity. Diphatsa is two points ahead of BDF VI. They play Orapa in the first game but are expected to have a tough time against fourth placed Kutlwano.

Kutlwano has thus far collected 43 points and have four matches in hand. In women’s games in Lobatse, Dynamites play Spartans and Prisons while in Francistown Diphatsa face Kutlwano.
