The Urban Warriors have managed to collect an impressive 11 points on the road since the year started, something which De Sa sees as a positive note going in this tie. However, he foresees a tough encounter.

“It’s a tough trip for us once again. We are just making a pit stop at home before we go. We’ve had a nice run, some good results run on the road, but it’s always challenging. We are a little thin still, we have a couple of injuries but again we’ll try our best to put a good team together and go out there and play well. We are enjoying being on the road together; the guys are pulling together nicely. There is a buzz about the team at the moment,” De Sa told the club’s website.

“It will be even more difficult now with Lawrence Lartey suspended after his red card, so we’ll miss him. Last week we also had Mosa Lebusa and Rivaldo Coetzee out, so we kind of had to reshuffle at the back. Hopefully we get them back in time for this match now,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ea Lla Kota head into this game having lost 2-0 to Chippa United last weekend, dropping to 10th spot on the log with 25 points.

A win for Giovanni Solinas men will see them getting back to the top half of the table.
