Mammila Takes Sly Dig At Tuks

Baroka FC head coach has dismissed suggestions that the University of Pretoria played well during their 1-all draw, saying that they were lucky to even come away with a point.

AmaTuks were first to draw blood through Delano Abrahams in the 44th minute, but Ananias Gebhardt’s second-half header saw the two sides walk away with just a point. The visitors moved level on points (4) with leaders Richards Bay, while Bakgakga stayed bottom of the mini-league standings with just two points from three matches.

Speaking after the match, Mammila was not convinced that their opposition deserved more than a point on the afternoon.

“No, no, no – Tuks they were lucky to get a point here,” Mammila said.

“They were lucky to get a point truly speaking. We gave away goals cheaply. Nothing, they did not work for it.

“Poor communication from my players. We should’ve just cleared that thing up.

“And we dominated them. I think we missed two you know in a goalmouth. But it happens in football. Finally, at least we scored and let’s go and pray for the draw.”

When asked how much points would be ideal for his side, Mammila said: “I’m praying for five.”

“I’m praying for five and it’s possible. We need to believe that five is possible.

“Let’s see, let’s see. But let them [Tuks and Richards Bay] go and play a draw, 0-0.

“So that if I win 1-0, we’ll check me and Tuks. Surely, Tuks maybe head-to-head they’ll go through because they’ve won against us.”

Baroka play their last match against Richards Bay on Wednesday, June 19, at the King Zwelithini Stadium, in a tie likely to determine who gains promotion to the DStv Premiership for the 2024/25 season.
