Black Leopards coach Jean Francois Losciuto says he is hoping to change the misfortunes of Lidoda Duvha in the promotion play-offs by being the coach that wins it for the club.

The Premier Soccer League on Tuesday conducted the draw for the 2016/17 promotion play-off matches.

Leopards will play their first game of the promotion play-offs against First Division rivals Stellenbosch FC on 3 June, having finished second in the play-offs in two of the past three seasons.

“The play-offs is not [like] the league,” Belgian head coach Losciuto said. “It’s a first for me in South Africa. I think it’s very important for me to analyse the first game [against Stellenbosch].

“Everybody knows the situation of Black Leopards… I think we played three times in the play-offs. So, I hope the story changes with me.

“We will prepare for these play-offs and I hope we make it after the four games.”

Stellenbosch will kick off the promotion play-offs against the PSL team that finishes 15th in the Absa Premiership on the 31st of May.
