TS Galaxy are still chasing their maiden National First Division (NFD) win and will be hoping to achieve that when they play hosts to Ubuntu Cape Town at Kameelrivier Stadium on Sunday.
Galaxy will be looking to snap a three – match winless run made up of two draws and one loss, which sees them lying 13th on the NFD log table with two points to their name.
The Rockets will be under the guidance of newly appointed coach Dan “Dance” Malesela for the first time on Sunday, this following his appointment more than a week ago.
The 53 years – old mentor, who is expected to turn the Mpumalanga side’s fortunes around following a slow start to the 2018/19 season, admits that he doesn’t know much about Ubuntu, saying his focus right now is on ensuring that his charges are ready to deal with whatever the visitors throw at them.
“I am not too familiar with the club now, I only saw them in last season’s Nedbank Cup and they had a good run. So you never know what has changed between then and now because clubs lose and acquire new players” Malesela says.
“I don’t want to draw too many conclusions I am merely focusing on this club that we have, to say what type of performance can we bring, and then we will deal with Ubuntu as the match progresses and say look this is where they’re giving us problems or this is where we can beat them”.
Just like The Rockets, Ubuntu will be looking to end a three – match winless run on Sunday, having lost in all their previous matches. Following their poor run of form the Cape – side are languishing at the bottom of the log standings.
In their previous league outing Galaxy went down 1 – 0 to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium more than a week ago, while on the same weekend Ubuntu were handed a 3 – 1 defeat by Uthongathi FC at Princess Magogo Stadium.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00
