The 2-1 loss to Peacemakers on Saturday has angered hundreds of Sankoyo Bush Bucks supporters who turned-up. This, as the performance of Ngurungu has been on a decline since the beginning of the season, and are currently sitting at the bottom of the log with two points from five games played.
One supporter opined that time has come for the coaching staff at the club to be thoroughly assessed, and be relieved of their duties if found to be failing.
“We are tired of all these losses and draws and at this stage we are supposed to be challenging for the top 4 because we have been there before. Therefore, we need coaches who will take their jobs seriously than just to seat in the sideline and watch like spectators,” he complained.
Other supporters believe that their coaches lack the skill to read the match and act appropriately. They also argue that the coaches tactics in turning the games around leave a lot to be desired.
“Therefore the shift and change of coaching at the club is imminent,” they told Times Sport.
Ngurungu started the league on a low note, and have failed to register a win from the five (5) games so far played. This is the first time the team losses home games in a row since 2018/19 season and their 2-1 loss against Peacemakers on Saturday was their 3rd loss in a row.
Most complaints from the supporters are that the assistant coaching staff is not delivering as expected as their head coach has been away for all most all the five games played.
Sankoyo Head coach, Atony Timothy a teacher at Mababe Primary School revealed that his major challenge was the distance between his work place and Maun. This, has affected the team’s training since he at times misses training sessions, even fixtures.
He indicated that he has no idea as to what could be the cause for his team’s poor performance, however, he has promised to work closely with his team now that the schools are closed.
“I am now in Maun and I will work closely with my colleagues during training so as to improve our results and make sure that we focus on our next assignment,” the head coach promised.
For his part, assistant coach Paphani Likha acknowledged that indeed it is tough at the moment, adding that supporters have the right to be livid and call for good results. He said that his center and right backs have suffered critical injuries, which led to the poor performance by the team.
“We lack concentration and communication at the back sometimes but I am hopeful that soon my boys will be able to perform as we want them to. Only a win will motivate us to play our best because we have been performing well despite our losses at the end,” he said.
