Micho: I trust my goalkeepers
Sredojevic made this declaration following the embarrassing rate at which Pirates conceded goals last season. it ended with a combined 52 goals going past the four keepers that were used last term Jackson Mabokgwane, Brighton Mhlongo, Siyabonga Mpontshane and Felipe Ovono. Ovono and Mhlongo are no longer with Pirates and have now been joined by Nigerian keeper Emmanuel Daniel who was signed at the beginning of the year but has since been offloaded without making a single appearance. Wayne Sandilands was also signed from Mamelodi Sundowns and brings valuable experience. “At present I have Wayne Sandilands, Jackson Mabokgwne and Siyabonga Mpontshane. Those are the three goalkeepers that I have absolutely trust, confidence and belief that the area of goalkeeping will be in safe hands,” says Sredojevic. “We want many clean sheets, we don’t want to be a team that is conceding unacceptable, In those 30 games conceding 40 goals in one season is unacceptable. We don’t want to be conceding more than one goal per match which is unacceptable for a club of this magnitude,” states the Serbian.   The 40 goals that Pirates leaked last season in the league ranks as their worst ever defensive record in a single season in the modern day PSL era and the first time they have ended on a negative goal difference through that period.

Nel hopes to reignite career at Ajax
The 21-year-old former SuperSport United player experienced some challenging times up north, including his failure to land a permanent contract with Tottenham Hotspur in England following a short trial at White Hart Lane in 2015. READ: Petersen happy with Ajax pre-season However, Nel is now with the Urban Warriors ahead of the 2017/18 Absa Premiership campaign after penning terms with the Cape club this week. Ajax kick things off at home against Golden Arrows on Saturday and Nel is eager to get his footballing career back on track. “I’m back in my hometown now after five years,” Nel tells KickOff.com. “I never had the best of seasons at SuperSport but hopefully things at Ajax can go smoother. “I came back to get more game time and start playing regularly. I’m hoping things will go well for me this time around but let’s see how things go.” Nel is currently suffering some discomfort with his groin but is reportedly still set to feature for the Urban Warriors’ first two league games against Golden Arrows and Maritzburg United [away, 23 August], before undergoing an operation. The former South Africa Under-17, U-20 and U-23 player was also quick to point out that the adversity he endured in Tshwane has taught him to be mentally stronger and to focus on things that matter on the playing field. “I learnt a lot from the guys and especially the senior players at SuperSport,” adds Nel. “They would encourage me and for that, I’ll always be grateful.

Senong shrugs off player withdrawals
Bafana will tackle Chipolopolo at 15h00 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium having drawn the first first leg 2-2 in East London last weekend. The hosts can qualify for the tournament in Kenya with a goalless or a 1-1 draw. South Africa, who have scored six goals and conceded two in three previous meetings, need to win to stand a chance of proceeding to the event, which runs from 11 January to 2 February 2018. Senong said: “Zambia has done well to score the two away goals, which was a bit disturbing for us but it’s all in the past we have another game to play. Zambia will probably be looking for a draw, maybe they will be defensive minded, or they may say we are playing at home let us be a bit adventurous – whatever happens they will be in a panic mode and might open up for us, so I still believe it’s going to be a nice encounter. I am confident we can get some goals in Ndola.” Bafana wasted no time when they arrived in Ndola and held their first training session on Thursday evening. “The boys are looking very good and they know they are very close to achieving qualification into the CHAN tournament. Having done so well up to this point, they have no intention of giving up now – the fact we both want it badly and that makes it perhaps the most difficult match of the qualifiers – more so because the overall winner will play in Kenya next year.” Senong will steer the team in the absence of head coach Stuart Baxter, who is focusing his attention on the upcoming back-to-back 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde. Bafana’s preparations have been hampered by the withdrawal of several players, but Senong says it won’t matter on match day. Senong has 18 players in camp following the arrival of Cape Town All Stars defender Ricardo Ndiki on Thursday night. Striker Ryan Moon was left behind after he failed to recover from an injury, while late replacements Siphelele Ndlovu of TS Galaxy (ABC Motsepe League) in Mpumalanga and Siyabonga Ngezana (Kaizer Chiefs) were withdrawn from the squad. Ndlovu did not have travel documents, while Ngezana was busy with exams and could not honour the national team call-up. “Thankfully we have brought in players that are used to this kind of challenges, players that have managed to gel quickly so we can build a squad to take on Zambia and compete against them. It is the nature and beauty of this game – that you combine a team quickly and make sure they are prepared,” concluded Senong. Zambia head coach Wedson Nyirenda is under pressure to do well in Ndola because since his appointment last September, Chipolopolo has lost both matches they played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. They went down 2-1 to Nigeria and lost 1-0 to Mozambique.
