Relegation-threatened Sankoyo Bush Bucks has beefed up its squad, signing five players during the just ended transfer window in their strive to survive the relegation axe.

Following their one nil loss against log leaders, Tafic this past weekend Ngurungu got lowered to position 11 with 9 points.  Going into week 13 still placed in the relegation zone, Sankoyo is pressured to do more to avoiding getting relegated to the lower league.

In an interview, the club’s team manager Collen Sebako revealed that they have boosted their goalkeeping department by acquiring the services of Katlego Maribana from UB Hawks, two defenders on loan being Bakisane Lufu from Sua United and Goabaone Moheto from Western Dynamites.

The club has also roped in their former midfielder, Wabuya Aebe who has been with Orapa United. Aebe was promoted with Sankoyo into the Premier League in 2014 and was pivotal for the team in their maiden assignment into the league until 2017 when he signed with the Ostriches.

Besides Aebe, Sebako further revealed that they have also signed on a loan, former Delta Winds midfielder Godisang Goletilwe as well as Kgakololo Gino Nona from Etsha. Meanwhile the club has released five players two goalkeepers (Issa Salepito and Hendrick Keadimilwe), two defenders (Edwin Baphare and Thato Salepito) and a striker (Keetsaletse Sekao).

Should Sankoyo continue with its poor performance, its chances of surviving relegation will remain slim looking at the fact that some other teams who are also faced with relegation have upped their game and are now doing well. A game against Mbalakalungu FC tomorrow (Saturday 18) is therefore a must win for the club to move away from the red zone.

The game however will not be an easy task for Sankoyo as Mbalakalungu, sitting on the second spot and four points behind Tafic has been on form since the beginning of the league. Should the Chobe side win, it will get the honours to occupy the first spot on the log.

Mbalakalungu is going into week 13 with 23 points following their 2-1 win against Peacemakers last weekend and the club’s win surely boosted their morale into their game against Sankoyo this weekend. Tafic are at the top with 27 points and are away to Santa Green tomorrow.

Motlakase will welcome BR Highlanders at Oris Radipotsane Stadium, Chadibe FC will face Peacemakers, and Miscellaneous against Calendar Stars while Rolling Guys will lock horns with Green Lovers at Mahalapye Secondary grounds. All games start at 1530hrs tomorrow.
