REHOBOTH, 02 NOV (NAMPA) – Local football giants, FNB Orlando Pirates Football Club (FC) coach, Woody Jacobs says his charges are well prepared for their two upcoming fixtures against LHU Blue Waters FC and Eleven Arrows FC this coming weekend in Walvis Bay.
In an interview with Nampa on Thursday, Jacobs said preparations have gone very well, ahead of the matches against the two coastal outfits.
“I think the preparations went well for the weekend games. We have put last Sunday’s defeat against Mighty Gunners FC behind us. We will have to learn from our mistakes, especially in defending and [how] to stop conceding,” Jacobs noted.
He further said the physical condition of the team is not yet satisfactory and that they are working on it.
“The coming weekend games are tough, but I think we can get something from these two games,” an optimistic Jacobs remarked.
From the four rounds played so far, Orlando Pirates have won one game, drawn one and lost two matches, conceded seven goals and scoring six in the process.
They are currently 10th on the Namibia Premier League (NPL) log standings.
