Da Gama: Somebody will pay for this


Highlands Park coach Owen Da Gama is confident his off-form team will turn things around and bounce back to winning ways.

Park suffered their third successive defeat in the league this season when they were beaten 3-1 by Orlando Pirates in Soweto last Saturday.

The Lions of the North have conceded 10 goals in their last three matches after also being beaten 3-0 and 4-1 by Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch respectively.

Nevertheless, Da Gama has assured his club's fans that the team will overcome this bad spell very soon.

"You have got supporters, and fans. You need to distinguish that," Da Game said about recent criticism.

"There are supporters that will support the entire team when things are not going well. That's what you expect from supporters.

"With regards to fans, they will say whatever they want to say. They have a right. I was fired seven times this week or resigned seven times this week. Some people just assume things are happening.

"In all fairness, we are really going through a bad patch. But I can tell you, we will turn things around. We will turn things around. Somebody has to pay for this."

Park were due to play Bidvest Wits this weekend but the game was postponed due to the Students' commitments in the CAF Confederation Cup.
