Orapa United vice president Kennekae Nkape remains hopeful that the team will win the double this season.
The Ostriches, who have had an average start to the 2017/18 BTC Premiership, recently parted ways with coach Mandida Ndlovu.
The Zimbabwean trainer was replaced by Motswana tactician Daniel Nare, who is expected to serve as the caretaker coach.
Nare, who was previously in charge of Miscellaneous SC, will be appointed assistant coach once the Ostriches hire a permanent head coach.
"I want to give you this assurance that everything is well," Nkape told the media.
United are currently placed sixth on the league standings with 11 points from eight games.
The Orapa-based side is 13 points behind log leaders Township Rollers with 22 league games left.
Nkape believes that his side can still mount a serious challenge for this season's league title.
"We had a puncher, but everything is is back in order," the United club official added.
"Our intentions are still clear, to win the league and cup this season."
United will face Township Rollers in a league match at the National Stadium on Saturday.
