Miscellaneous coach Oris Radipotsane believes their penultimate 2017/18 BTC Premiership clash against log leaders Township Rollers will be a 50/50 tie.
The coach was speaking ahead of the clash set for Thursday afternoon as they host the reigning league champions.
As he welcomes back his two central defenders for a crunch encounter, Radipotsane believes their 3-1 loss to Orapa United last weekend was a wake-up call.
"We missed chances against Orapa United. I warned my players to come out of their comfort zone this time. My two central defenders are back,” he told local media.
"One from injury, the other one could not face his parent club, as per loan agreement. Our game against Rollers is 50/50 because we understand each other very well.
“We watched them play their last game. Drago ( Dragojlo Stanojlovic) was also watching us against Orapa.
"Our objective is 3rd position this season."
Radipotsane’s troops occupy the fourth spot with 48 points from 28 league matches and will wrap up their season away to Uniao Flamengo Santos on May 19.
Serowe Sports Complex is the venue for this clash against Popa and is set to get underway at 15:30 on Thursday afternoon.
