After their 1-1 draw away against Cape Town City in the DStv Premiership on Saturday, Royal AM head coach John Maduka says they are closer to their goal for the season.

AM and City shared the spoils at the DHL Stadium, a result that see them KZN side remain second on the log, four points ahead of third-placed City.

While Maduka says at the beginning of the season, their only mandate was to keep their status, the technical team had targeted at least a top eight position.

He says that now that they’ve found themselves ahead of the objective, they are hoping to get a few good results in their final five games to finish in the top four, and as a high as possible.

“Ja, look, when we started, the chairlady herself just wanted the team to survive, to make sure that we still have a PSL status in the coming season,” Maduka said after the game.

“But as a technical team, we thought it was very important for us to finish top eight and we did make a plan to set a target that this is where we want to achieve.

“We had a minimum points that we wanted to achieve, we had also at the same time maximum points that wanted to achieve and we knew that if we get the minimum points, which already we have passed there, we will be able to be in top eight.

“And if we do get our maximum points, the way we plan it, it will be able to take us in on top four or so, which is known as of now, we are closer there.

“We are going to our five last games in the league, we need some points that we need from those five games. If we get those, it will put (us) exactly where we wanted to finish.”

Royal AM, who are also in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals, play AmaZulu in their next league game, scheduled for the 24th of April.
