Botswana seeking maximum points against Malawi

Botswana coach David Bright says his side will be going all out for a win when they face Malawi on Wednesday in the second round games in the COSAFA Cup Group B.

Bright’s side will be looking for their second successive win after a 2-1 victory against Angola in their opening group game on Monday.

The Zebras coach believes it will be a tough game, but a must-win and he is looking beyond the performance, as long as they get the result.

Bright also explained that he watched his opponents against Mauritius and has picked up their weakness and will be aiming to exploit spaces behind their defense.

“These are group stages with only three games to play, so we need to grind the results and not go onto the field and pass the ball like Arsenal. We are going onto the field with one thing in our minds and that is to score goals and defend as a unit.”

Zebras striker Onkabetse Makgantai, who scored second goal against Angola, and Kobamelo Kebaikanyane have managed to shake off minor knocks and are available for selection, while defender Thato Kebue will face a late fitness test due to painful heels picked up during the win over Angola.

Botswana are currently top of Group B, level on three points with Mauritius, who take on Angola in the earlier kick-off at 17h00. Botswana against Malawi will be played at 19h30.
