Sankoyo Bush Bucks coach Philani Mabhena says they will be desperate for maximum points when they take on Police XI on Saturday.

Ngurungu and Police are placed 11th, and 12th respectively on the league standings and one of them could be relegated from the Botswana Premier League.

Sankoyo boosted their chances of surviving relegation when they thumped Gilport Lions 6-1 at home over the weekend.

"It is a tough situation. Against Gilport we were a bit nervous, first-half,” Mabhena told local media.

"We were composed in the second-half. There was an incident that delayed play. The opposite coach felt fair play should have applied.

Sankoyo, who were promoted to the elite league in 2014, are only a point above the relegation zone with one game left.

“That's football, I think he said something, and the referee showed him his way to the stands,” he continued.

"Our main focus now is our last game. We desperately need three points. It's a tough one.”

Police are three points above the relegation zone and they have two games in hand as their clash with Gaborone United was called off over the weekend.
