The 2018/19 Namibia Premier League (NPL) first leg concludes tomorrow with a clash between bottom-feeders Orlando Pirates and Young Brazilians.

Young Brazilians are currently on 11 points, whereas Pirates are rock-bottom on six points.

Brazilians head coach Tolla Julius said his charges are confident and they are looking forward to picking up points.

“If we win this match we move up. Our biggest problem so far has been the goalkeepers. We want to fill that hole with the transfer window opening.

“For now we haven't sign anyone yet, but that is the plan after the match,” Julius said.

He said Pirates will not be a walk in the park, as they too want to pick up points. “No matter what, we are ready for them.”

Pirates coach Lucky Kakuva was not available for comment.

The two clubs are looking to add fresh blood during the transfer window, in order to push them up the log during the second leg of the league.

The Namibia Football Association (NFA) on Monday officially opened the transfer window, which will run until 5 April, with all the paperwork to be certified by the NFA competitions department.

The NFA secretariat advised clubs that no extensions will be granted, and urged them to make use of the window period, as it will be the final time this season to make changes to squads.

It is a requirement for every player to have a national ID number, in order to be registered, as it will for form part of the player's unique registration number.
