Green Lovers unfazed by 5-2 loss in their first away match

PALAPYE: The beMOBILE Premiership rookies, Green Lovers drew positives from their 5-2 drubbing at the weekend by fellow newcomers and hosts Jwaneng Galaxy.

Coach, Onthusitse Kootswele praised his charges for their performance in the two opening fixtures and said losing to Galaxy could be a blessing in disguise. “It was very critical to win the opening game and the boys came to the party. I believe in my boys and I know they have a lot up their sleeves to surprise many. Yes we lost to Jwaneng Galaxy, but the boys played according to script.  “We played really well and we could only take the positives out of that game. What is important is how we bounce back from the defeat,” Kootswele said.

Kootswele said the challenge that still lies ahead is lack of sponsorship, although he said they are in early talks with one company.
