Fighters won't change coach yet

Letang 'Rasta' Kgengwenyane will remain Mogoditshane Fighters' coach until the end of the season. This is according to the team public relations officer Kagiso Maruapula.

Maruapula said the executive meeting they held on Tuesday resolved that they continue with Kgwengweyane, as firing him would be a miscalculation since they are only left with two games before the end of the season. He added that the committee that would take over at the beginning of next season would decide Kgwengwenyane's fate, as they (current committee) do not have a problem with him.

"We are very comfortable with him, hence we decided to continue with him," Maruapula added. He said there are few sections of supporters who want the coach to be relieved of his duties. But such suggestions would create pressure and confusion in the Fighters, who are in a very delicate position and face possible relegation. Earlier in the week, there were reports that Kgengwenyane had been shown the door because of the team's poor run. 

Kgengwenyane managed to take Fighters to the Mascom Premier League at the beginning of the season after being relegated in the 2005-2006 season.

However, the team has always struggled to combine well. Of the 28 games they have played they only managed to win nine, drawing four and losing 14. Those who have faith in the coach

contend that he is good but does not have quality players at his disposal- a thing that was corroborated by Maruapula.

The team's spokesperson said they "will be forced to buy big names in the coming season to strengthen the squad". Fighters lost 2-1 to Gaborone United on Wednesday night but Maruapula is still optimistic that his side will escape the dreaded axe. They are still to pay against relegated Jwaneng Comets and the third-placed Santos.

He said though the situation is scary they will remain focused in their bid to avoid relegation. Fighters need to win their two remaining games and keep their fingers crossed that other relegation candidates like Notwane, Tasc, and BMC lose all their games. If they win the remaining two games Fighters will have 36 points at the end of the season. Maruapula believes they will win the two remaining games.

However, considering the team's form, it will only take a miracle for the team to remain in the Mascom Premier League at the end of the season. Tension is mounting at the former army side and it is feared that "pressure may make Fighters falter where it matters most".
