Komani’s Seven Stars FC will look to build momentum in their ABC Motsepe League game when they visit AmaXesibe FC at Mount Ayliff Stadium in eMaXesibeni on January 21.
Stars claimed their second win of the 2022/23 ABC Motsepe League season when they defeated former professional side, Bizana Pondo Chiefs 2-1 at the Dumpy Adams Sports Complex in Komani last weekend.
The Aloevale-based side have claimed eleven points from nine matches this season, with the win over the Bizana-based side adding to a victory over Bush Pirates FC from Addo. The side also lost twice this season while drawing five times.
Stars Head Coach Yongama Kepkey said they have a lot of work to do for the team to improve this season.
“Yes, we won against Pondo Chiefs but we have to move on and analyze where we can improve as a team. We have to improve how we keep the ball. We have to stick to our ball possession philosophy," said Kepkey.
"It needs time, I know. It is a process; the boys have been through a lot of negativity and all that. I am happy that against Pondo Chiefs they stuck as a team. They fought for each other. I am happy for the club.
“We have to keep on fighting. The priority should be more on scoring many goals in the coming matches and defending our goal should be secondary. We can score more goals and we will score more goals because we create chances.”
Seven Stars played out to a goalless draw against AmaXesibe in the first leg of the season last year October in Komani.
"Obviously we want to win this one, we put on a good performance against them last year but now it is important that we build on the win against Pondo Chiefs and continue to collect maximum points,” said Kepkey.
