Nothing To Lose Against SSU – Moloi

Gaborone United coach Pontsho Moloi says his side has nothing to lose against SuperSport United in the Total Energies CAF Confederation Cup second preliminary leg at the Peter Mokaba stadium tonight.

The Botswana-based side hasn’t had competitive matches since the first leg against Matsatsantsa in their back yard where they scored a late equaliser to steal a point in the 1-1 draw.

Moloi doesn’t think that match fitness is a problem for his side even though he acknowledges that it could be an advantage to the opposition.

Moloi feels his charges are brave they now know what to expect from SuperSport now and they will give themselves every shot to progress to the group stage of the tournament.

“Of course, we are really looking to give a big, big shot to our opponent,” Moloi told the media in Polokwane on Friday.

“It’s a big opportunity for us as a football club to try and progress into the group stages. It’s within our hands, it looks exciting and we know how difficult of a task it is to do so and we will go all out and try to win the game or try to progress into the next stage

“Sometimes I don’t know what goes on in these boys’ heads when we play home but home or away we play the same. We play one way we try to go forward we try to win games we won’t change.

“We will go tomorrow and try and win the game. We will go forward we will try to create opportunities and try to score goals.

“Like I said tomorrow looks very exciting for us. We know it’s a big shot we have to give everything else. We have nothing else to lose, to be honest. We have everything else to gain so we’ll have a go at our opponent.”
