WINDHOEK, 14 MAR (NAMPA) With only six matches remaining in the Namibia Premier League (NPL), log leaders Tigers Football Club (FC) are protecting their nine-point lead and aim to win all remaining games to claim the league title.
Coach Brian Isaacs said this during an interview with the media after their match against defending champions African Stars in the capital on Sunday.
Tigers won 2-1 after trailing 0-1 at halftime.
Tigers now have 57 points in first place and Black Africa (BA) 48 points in second place.
The ball is in our court, the title is for us to win or lose. We are not untouchable and if we lose the remaining games then we are in trouble. Isaacs said after losing their first game of the season 0-3 to Black Africa two weeks ago, they realised they are not untouchable and changed their approach, corrected their mistakes and are now back on track.
Meanwhile, BA recorded the highest number of goals in a single NPL game this season when they demolished Flamingoes 7- 0 on Saturday. Roger Katjiteo scored a hat-trick, while Neville Vries, Dynamo Fredericks, Marco van Wyk and Heinrich Kazeurua one goal each.
Bottom of the table, Flamingoes have 17 points.
BA coach Woody Jacobs told Nampa on Sunday he was pleased with his teams performance.
The team's quality came out on the day and we had great performance, he said.
On the league title race, Jacobs remained hopeful to win the premiership.
I believe if we can keep on winning this way and catch up with Tigers, it will be great; nothing is over until it is over, he said optimistically.
The 2015/2016 NPL will end early May this year.
