Township Rollers head coach Nikola Kavazovic says the team has recovered well following their trip from Tanzania.
Popa arrived back in Gaborone on Wednesday after defeating Tanzanian giants Young Africans 2-1 in the 2018 CAF Champions League first round first-leg match in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday.
Rollers will now face Black Forest in a BTC Premiership match at the University of Botswana (UB) Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
“We have recovered well, and after Black Forest we have time to recover for Yanga," he told the club's official website.
"My only concern is the UB field. After every game we have a few injuries, even I feel pain in my legs, and I just stand next to the line.
Rollers are placed second on the league standings - three points behind the leaders Jwaneng Galaxy.
“Honestly I didn't have time to think about them (Black Forest). We will put out our best without results pressure," the Serbian added.
"Whatever happens on Sunday will not disturb us for the Yanga game. I will prevent every kind of pressure on players.
Rollers are set to host Young Africans in the second-leg clash next weekend. The winner on aggregate will advance to the group stage.
"We will do our best to win the game. But for sure we will not waste more energy on this game than we can afford," he concluded.
