Gallants coach pushing for new signings


Marumo Gallants coach Sebastian Migne is hoping to add a few more players to the squad as they also prepare for continental action.

Gallants began the season with defeat to Baroka FC but they followed that up with a goalless draw against the mighty Orlando Pirates on Tuesday night.

"I'm happy. I'm proud of my players," the Frenchman told SuperSport TV.

"They gave me some good answers. The team spirit and tactically we were good. I think we created some trouble for Pirates. We were unlucky as well because we hit the crossbar.

"We had a good study of Pirates. We are strong defensively and compact. We took the example of Stellenbosch against them. Now we need to try and develop an attractive football. But we need to keep a good balance."

While Migne was pleased with the result against Pirates, he still wants to add to the squad before the transfer window closes.

"We need other players to add some possibility for me. After you can manage well," he added.

"It was interesting at the beginning but it was difficult towards the end of the match because I needed more possibilities.

"It was better than last week. We corrected some things on defensive set-pieces. I have a lot of hope for the future.

"If you don't have a fullish squad in continental competition, it will not be easy to travel and we will lose some players. Try to help me to convince my board to add some players. Not only players but good players."
