18 April 2019 | Sports

Black Africa coach Paulus Shipanga says they are looking for revenge when they take on Tigers tonight in an MTC Namibia Premier League (NPL) clash.

The log leaders will face Tigers at 19:00 in what is expected to be a thrilling encounter at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.

Shipanga said the clash against the Shandumbala outfit will be tough, but they want to collect much-needed points and will pull out all the stops.

“It is going to be a crucial encounter but the players are motivated, as they have always been, to stay at the top. Tigers knocked us out of the Standard Bank Top 8 Cup, so we are looking to take revenge tonight,” said Shipanga.

Tigers coach Peter 'Oubaas' Mokwena said they are going all out to win the match.

“We have prepared well for the match. We know BA are desperate for a win and so are we.

“We need the points and no one wants to lose out, but I don't want to put a lot of pressure on my players. As much as this is a crucial match, we will take it one match at a time,” added Mokwena.

Tigers currently occupy 10th spot on the log. In other matches, African Stars will face Young Brazilians tomorrow at 19:00.

On Saturday at 16:00, Tura Magic will face Eleven Arrows at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.

At the same venue on Saturday, Orlando Pirates have a date with Civics at 18:30, while Mighty Gunners will face Blue Waters at the Mokati Stadium in Otjiwarongo. The match will kick off at 15:00. Life Fighters and Citizens will clash at 17:00.

Julinho Sporting will be in Okahandja to face Okahandja United at 16:00. On Sunday, Black Africa and Unam will play at 15:00 at Unam.

In Windhoek on Monday, Citizens and Young Brazilians will play at 15:00. Mighty Gunners and Julinho will then cross swords at 13:00 on the same day at the Mokati Stadium.

Life Fighters will take on Blue Waters at 15:00. On Tuesday in Windhoek, Civics will confront Tigers at 19:00.
