Naughty Boys gets another chance

Once again, Tlokweng Naughty Boys have qualified for the Premier League play-offs. Definitely, the Tlokweng side hopes that history will repeat itself.

Naughty Boys surprised many in the 2005 season when they outwitted the then just relegated Premier League side Flamingo Santos in Tlokweng to book a place in the elite league. The man who did the damage was Busang Rasefako who rose twice above the Santos' defence to power home and send Dinoko to the Mascom Premier League as Santos sunk to the First Division.

The big question now is, can Naughty Boys repeat that feat again in the absence of the experienced and key players like Rasefako, Mooketsi Motlhagodi and David Mfolo? Club chairman Elija Katse is optimistic that his side will repeat the 2004 feat and bounce back to the Premier League. "Mathematically, we have already qualified for the play-offs despite our last game against Masitaoka on May 1. I cannot say we will win the play-offs but I am quite confident that my players will once again rise to the occasion," Katse said.
He asserted that he has a more balanced team this time around and they should compete effectively with promotion rivals. "We need to use our last game to prepare for the play-offs. It will be tough especially because we do not know the strengths of our opponents but we can do it again. I don't want to sound boastful but I believe that our current team is strong enough to compete against who ever," he said.
