Ethekwini Coastal coach Lindani Shezi says they won't get hammered

Posted: 9 March 2012 Time: 10:31

Ethekwini Coastal coach Lindani Shezi is adamant that they will not suffer a heavy defeat when they meet Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup at King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday evening.  

Though they also play in the SAB League - the same level as Powerlines FC who were massacred 24-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns recently – Shezi says they will not be humiliated and will give Pirates the normal challenges that they usually get.   "Pirates will definitely not score 24 goals and there will be no records to talk about after the match. Maybe they will score four or less but at the same time we will have also scored. Mark my words we will also score regardless of what the score is in the end. We know their weaknesses at the back especially Moeneeb Josephs who doesn't stay on his line so we have a plan to score and it will work.    "We will take a gamble going into this match because we have nothing to lose. We have to enjoy and that will happen by playing our normal football which is why we haven't done anything different at training this week," says Shezi.    Ethekwini are in fifth place in the Ethekwini Central Region SAB League but have six games in hand.   Only Andile Wanda – formerly with Golden Arrows – has ever played in the PSL with the majority of the squad being teenagers.   "We are a team with plenty boys still at school who will write their matric this year. Our goalkeeper Nceli Ndwandwe played for Blackburn Rovers in the First Division," he says.   With the Pirates camp allegedly in shaky waters Shezi says that is what he is more worried about as he doesn't know what to expect.   "I will have preferred to play Pirates when they are stable rather than now where there are a lot of things that are said to be happening.    "Actually, we will prefer to play the Pirates first team with all their regulars rather than fringe players who want to impress and have a lot to prove," he adds.
