Majoro drawing from the past

Rise and Shine were one of only a few teams that enjoyed success against the Citizens during the previous campaign, hammering them by 4-2 towards the latter part of last season.

“I think we were a bit relaxed in that game because we scored two quick goals and we thought we were home and dry of which it was a lesson,” Majoro told reporters. “If we can learn from that going forward we can rectify the mistakes that we did.”

The former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs striker maintains despite that drubbing, they won’t approach this game with revenge on their minds.

“When you have that mentality that you want to avenge against someone you ended up opening up yourself  because all you're thinking of is that you have to beat them and that comes with the pressure – already there is pressure is football so, we just have to do exactly what we’ve doing so far in the friendly games and everything will happen,” said Majoro.

The experienced 32-year old player also had high praise for City’s new acquisitions.

“I see a lot of commitment from the guys and even the guys that we’ve signed. They brought something different that we didn’t have last season.

“I believe like together as a team we’ll conquer. Hard work will be key this season to separate us from other teams. I’m not saying that they don’t put in the work but if we believe in ourselves like we did last season I believe we will manage to achieve our goals,” Majoro concluded.
