MAUN: Newly promoted First Division side, Chobe United coach, Mothokomedi Mombala has said their main priority is to stay in First Division North this season.
Speaking to Mmegi Sport after his team beat Maun Tigers 1-0 at the Maun Sports Complex on Saturday, Mombala said following their promotion, they managed to strengthen their squad with four players who have First Division experience.
“Our target is just to maintain our stay in the First Division. We do not want to put ourselves under pressure,” he said. Against Maun Tigers on Saturday, Chobe found the opener in first half from Modise Kenewang and maintained the lead until the final whistle. They have now accumulated 13 points and are sixth on the league table. The loss meanwhile, relegated Maun Tigers from position six to nine. The Maun side went into the game without coach Lolo Mosojane who was out on work commitments.
“Our players and coaching staff are always away on work commitments. In our next game against TASC, our coach, Mosojane and me will be away on work duties.”
Timothy explained that the team is facing acute shortage of resources. He said most players have no playing boots as the team is struggling financially. However, he explained that their main target is to finish on a better position come the end of the season. He said their main problem is missing chances attributing that to the fact that their strikers fail to come for training.
