TAFIC all but relegated from FDN league


FRANCISTOWN: TAFIC coach Lovemore Mokgweetsi has refused to give up on his side’s chances of surviving relegation from the First Division North (FDN) league insisting that a ‘miracle’ can happen. TAFIC defeated visiting Santa Green by a solitary goal at the old Francistown Stadium on Saturday to keep their slim hopes of survival alive.

The goal came in the 57th minute through Zimbabwean Nigel Gurere. “I know that we are in a very precarious position, but everything can happen in football. It has been a tough season. We improved very late. We are hoping for the best in our last game against Green Lovers,” he said. An optimistic Mokgweetsi added: “The club’s executive has been very supportive to us in recent games. It is just that we were unlucky in some matches.

We could have done better in our previous game against Calendar Stars. We were very unfortunate to lose the match. I hope the management will help us to prepare well for the last game.” TAFIC players were booked at the prestigious Adansonia hotel leading to their weekend clash. Mokgweetsi also bemoaned missed chances against Santa Green. TAFIC could have won the match by at least four goals have they not been wasteful. Although Mokgweetsi remain hopeful, it is almost inevitable that TAFIC, a giant in Botswana football will be playing in the Francistown regional league next season. TAFIC occupy the last relegation spot with 22 points heading into the last game.
