GU reclaim the city’s bragging rights

IN ACTION: GU vs Rollers

It was an afternoon to remember last Saturday as Gaborone United reclaimed the city’s bragging rights with a 2-1 victory against cross-town rivals Township Rollers, in an action packed BTC Premiership fixture.

Mara Moloi was the first to find the back of the net with a header giving the ‘Reds’ a lead on the 11th minute.

Popa tried to come from behind but GU keeper Goitseone Phoko was up for the task as he kept their enterprising strike force at bay till half time.

On the 72nd minute of the game, Thatayaone Kgamanyane extended GU’s lead but Rollers were not deterred as they kept surging forward and were rewarded as Motsholetsi Sikele halved the deficit.

Speaking after the game GU Caretaker Coach, Pontsho Moloi, said although he felt they could have done better, he was happy with the desire and the attitude of his players. He said scoring first has always worked for them even in the past games as it helps them to stay composed for the remainder of the game.

“Today we played under a lot of pressure because our opponents are a big team and they have good quality players. I also have a great quality and experienced squad and they know what to do when we are under pressure. We work and talk about this at training and here we are with yet another win. We take every game as it comes and next up is Prisons XI who are breathing heavily up our necks on the league table and it is going to be an interesting game, ” said Moloi.

Rollers Coach, Frank Nuttal, said despite the loss he takes a lot of positives from the game. He said they have a lot of injuries at the team.

He said he brought in Kamogelo Matsabu as a captain in the absence of Simisani Mathumo who is nursing an injury .

Rollers fans however did not take kindly to the results as they went on the rampage throwing bottles at referees and the Police had to intervene to rescue the match officials.
