TS Galaxy FC head coach Dan Malesela says he is encouraged by the amount of work he has been able to do with his boys since the start of the current FIFA International Break.
Galaxy went into the international recess after playing out a 1 – 1 draw against University of Pretoria at Kameelrivier Stadium last week, a result that saw the side’s draws in the National First Division (NFD) increase to seven this season.
In addition to a tight training schedule, as part of their FIFA break program the Mpumalanga side also played a friendly match against SuperSport United on Friday.
“It gave us a good chance to try certain personnel in different areas, it also gave us a chance do the things we could not do tactically, so more than anything it did us good than bad I think. But obviously that will depend on how we fare in the coming match” Malesela says.
Malesela says one of the areas they’ve been focusing on is his side’s struggle in front of goal, which he concedes that it is starting to become a concern.
The Rockets have only managed to find the back of the net twice in their previous five matches.
“We are trying to address the issue of goals, but you know you cannot be completely so confident to say yes now we have solved the goal scoring issue until you see those goals being scored. So we will just have to see what we put in at training whether it will yield results in the matches”.
The 12th placed Galaxy will resume their NFD campaign with an away clash against Mbombela United at KaNyamazane Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
