Kavazovic accuses authorities of favouring Galaxy

Rollers vs Galaxy. PIC. KENNEDY RAMOKONE
Township Rollers' coach, Nikola Kavazovic has accused football authorities of 'favouring' title rivals, Jwaneng Galaxy after the two teams played to a dull 0-0 draw on Monday at the National Stadium.

The top of the table clash was expected to dish out the best local football has to offer, however, on the night the teams left fans who braved the chilly breeze feeling robbed as neither failed to find the back of the net.

Kavazovic felt Galaxy has a helping hand from local authorities as they have had better playing conditions with a better schedule than his side. 

"We cannot compare how better (a) schedule they (Galaxy) have and how better (a) schedule they had in the past, (in) 40 days they played consecutive games at home.  There is no way in the world that one team can play six games in a row (at home) but they are supported by someone while we travelled 400 kilometres (km) to Orapa and back then after four days to Maun and back and that's 4,000 km, which is exhausting, after that you should give players two days of rest.  You lose in two days in (a) sense of practicing."

"We are struggling and we are still here, Mascom Cup is at CA Sales, Kampala City is coming here on

May 5 (and) we are three points in front of Galaxy so we must be happy to keep on struggling.  We are struggling against every one," the outspoken tactician said.

Rollers has been on the road recently as they played third placed, Orapa United away on Easter Monday before travelling to the far north west to take on Sankoyo Bush Bucks five days later.  

The team played their first home game this month when they hosted Sharps Shooting Stars at the National Stadium on Friday evening in a game that finished 3-3. Kavazovic said he was satisfied with the results as they are three points ahead of Galaxy. 

He said his opponents on the night had better defensive organisation while admitting his side have goal scoring problems. 

His counterpart, Galaxy's assistant coach, Matshidiso Moseki said his side approached the game with great caution as they were playing a team with quality in the squad.

"There is no easy opponent, there is no easy team, some want a top eight finish while some are playing to avoid relegation, we will fight until the end," Moseki said.
