Kanku Musambani, head coach of Eleven Arrows Netball Club, yesterday said there is nothing special about current MTC Namibia Netball Premier League (NNPL) log leaders Tigers, and come tomorrow, they will be fully ready to take them on.
The two teams will square off at the United netball courts in the capital, and despite not having recorded any win since the start of the current campaign, Musambani expressed confidence that his girls have what it takes to give Tigers a good run for their money.
Arrows are currently stationed 11th on the log with no point, while Tigers are topping the league with 10 points. But the visiting gaffer refuses to read too much into the log standings, saying his team stands a great chance to collect maximum points as Tigers is just a team like any other.
“We are going to take them on just like we would have taken on any other team in the premier league. I believe they haven’t played a strong team yet, that’s why they are not beaten. We are ready for Saturday, and we have been preparing the whole week.
“We want it to go our way. I don’t think it will be an easy game, but I am confident that this time around, we can work something out. The plan is to play and collect maximum points,” he enthused.
On his part, Tigers head coach Morné Pienaar said they are under no pressure heading into the match, as the mission is to maintain their impressive run.
“Every team in the league is a threat, so we don’t take it lightly. Therefore, the approach will be the same just like we have done in the other games. We have observed our mistakes, and went back to the drawing board to correct them. I believe we are ready for this encounter,” he noted.
Also in action tomorrow at the United courts are Namibia Correctional Services, who will take on Golden Girls, while games between Rebels and Young Stars, and Dollars Stars and Rebels will be played at the Ogongo Unam Campus netball courts.
