MBABANE – Red Lions coach Mlamuli ‘Sputla’ Zwane believes the team is on course in stamping its authority in the elite league.

‘Sputla’, as he is affectionately known, made this assessment during a post-match interview after seeing his side play to a goalless draw against Royal Leopard at Somhlolo National Stadium on Wednesday night.

“We played very well as we created chances but missed them. I think we need to work on our finishing. They say practise makes perfect, so we need to practise scoring drills until the players get it right,” Zwane said.
He further said they were happy with the point.

“We got four points from a possible six points in two games within a space of four days. We are getting there and we need to really maintain this performance in order to compete fairly in the second round,” he said.
Asked on what he has changed in the team since rejoining them last month, he said, “Look, I can say I have brought confidence and tactical discipline into the team.

“Their transition from defence to attack is amazing and we only need to score more goals.” Zwane said.
Meanwhile, Royal Leopard coach Sifiso ‘Nuro’ Ntibane noted that they started off slowly.
“When we started attacking, we were rushing and we lacked composure upfront, thus we missed a number of chances. Well we had to settle for a goalless draw and I am very concerned about these draws. This means we have to start scoring goals and stop conceding goals,” Ntibane said.
