TS Galaxy captain Mxolisi Macuphu expects Marumo Gallants to play beautiful footbalI when they meet in a DStv Premiership match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Wednesday (17h15).
Macuphu reckons that Dan Malesela’s presence as Gallants coach makes this match a lot more interesting. Malesela is a former Rockets coach.
“I think South Africa knows that coach Dan likes keeping the ball. So, it’s a big shift for us, more especially we are also a ball-keeping team. I think it’s something really, really big. It will depend on who wants it the most,” Macuphu said.
This is, indeed, a very important match for both sides, who find themselves in the bottom half of the Premiership standings.
The Rockets are 13th with nine points after winning twice, drawing three times and losing seven matches. Gallants, meanwhile, are 15th having won once, drawn five matches and lost five times.
“I think the team has responded very well to my leadership. As a captain, I’m encouraged to have come back against Cape Town City and Swallows. We are on the right track,” the 32-year-old Macuphu said.
