Mafco FC Coach Temwa Msuku believes his side can push further if they win their remaining games starting with this weekend’s assignment against Master Security at home on Saturday.
“Our performance against Mzuni was Superb and I thank the boys for their hard work. I believe if we continue with the performance we displayed, we can push and reduce the gap with teams that are above us on the log table” said Msuku.
“We started the season badly but that does not mean we can finish badly too, teams will be dropping points and its up to us to capitalize on that,” he said.
