BOTH David Bright and Jomo Sono believes that their clubs will perform better than today when they come face to face in the second leg of the National First Division Play-Off match come next week.
The two coaches were speaking after their sides, Bay United and Jomo Cosmos played to a disappointing goalless draw in the first leg encounter of these two-legged play-offs this afternoon in Port Elizabeth’s Nelson Mandela University Stadium. The second leg takes place at Makhulong Stadium in Thembisa this coming Sunday.
Said Bright: “I am very happy about the outcome of today’s match as my boys did not to concede a goal at home, and all what is left for us is to go out there and work hard for an early away goal that could see us enhance our chance of marching all the way back to the Absa Premiership,” said the former Santos mentor.
Sono on the other hand think that it will be them celebrating after the second leg match in their own back-yard in Thembisa.
“Bay United had an opportunity in today’s match, but failed to take that advantage and they must not expect an easy game when they come to us because we are going to make life difficult for them come next week,” said Sono.
The winner in next week’s match will gain an automatic promotion to the elite league with the loser joining Thanda Royal Zulu, Pretoria University and the club that finishes in the 15th position in the Absa Premiership for the Promotion/Relegation Play-Offs.
