DESPERATE TO SCORE!

CAPE Town All Stars coach David Kannemeyer is concerned about his club’s lack of killer instinct ahead of today’s encounter with last season’s runners-up Black Leopards.

The two will lock horns in this weekend’s opening National First Division fixture at Athlone Stadium today (3pm).

Both clubs have been shy in front of goal. Leopards have scored only one goal in their last three matches, while a much-improved All Stars have scored just three.

The former Kaizer Chiefs left-back says scoring goals will ensure All Stars win their battles this season.“We have been playing good football since the season started, my only worry is that we are not getting goals.

“We face Leopards, who are never easy opponents, but we are prepared for the fight. We will need to kill off the game against them as soon as possible to kill their momentum,” added Kannemeyer.

  • In a match to be played tomorrow, Mthatha Bucks will host log leaders Stellenbosch FC at Mthatha Stadium (3pm).

Stellies coach Steve Barker said: “So far we seem to be getting it right more consistently than last season. We will need to maintain this consistency, however, and not get ahead of ourselves.”

  • Bottom-of-the-table Royal Eagles and second bottom Ubuntu Cape Town will continue their search for their first three points of the season tomorrow. Eagles meet Richards Bay FC at Umhlathuze Sports Complex, while Ubuntu and Highlands Park clash at Makhulong Stadium. Both games start at 3pm.
