Petros remains bullish despite weekend thrashing

BY TERRY MADYAUTA

WHAWHA coach Luke Petros says he is confident of reversing their 6-0 weekend thrashing at the hands of FC Platinum in their first match of this year’s edition of the Chibuku Super Cup.

Despite the defeat, Petros believes that his team can recover and he still expects them to have a good season in the topflight.

In the same group, Triangle also have nothing to show off after their defeat at the hands of Ngezi Platinum.

Nevertheless, Petros reckons his prison wardens will qualify for the next stage of the Chibuku Super Cup, where only two teams from the group can proceed.

The former Kaizer Chiefs marksman has chosen to remain positive and is “more motivated than ever” to turn around the club’s fortunes.

Judging by his men’s lacklustre performance last weekend, it is easy to write them off in this tournament.

“We started on a bad foot, but that’s not the end. We have a chance of rising and winning the remaining games if we work hard,” Petros said.

“Although it looks like a gloomy future, we took lessons from the previous match and our players are now getting geared to improve themselves.

“We take each game as it comes and we expect better results in the remaining game we are going to play.”

Against FC Platinum, they played second fiddle in all departments, but it was WhaWha’s defence that will most likely worry Petros and he might be forced to make changes.

Former Dynamos forward King Nasama is likely to be thrown into the fray to reinforce the team’s strike force.

Should Nasama be given a chance, so much will be expected from him as one of the experienced players in the team.
