Francistown BTC premiership giants TAFIC FC are working hard to beef up their defence. Having experienced a decent start to the 2016/17 season, the defence is arguably their weakest point having conceded seven times in six games. This week TAFIC assistant coach Elias Chinyemba said his team has been letting in easy goals due to a lax defence. Chinyemba said they have been working hard on their defence ahead of their next encounter.

Chinyemba said Matjimenyenga showed some defence prowess and perseverance when they played Bulawayo Giants Highlanders game this past weekend. The game was in celebration of 120 years of anniversary for Francistown city, a game which ended in a 2-2 draw.

“Having worked on my defence, my other aim will be to work hard with the youthful strikers who need to bang goals for the team to remain in the league and challenge for honours as our aim is not to add numbers but win games,” he said. “I will use the defence strategy which I have been implementing for the past two weeks and I hope this time around we will collect maximum points to finish the first round in a very comfortable position.

I have lectured my players more especially the defence department and the striking force to work as a collective team in order for us to bag vital goals.” He continued that currently TAFIC does not need any new players as the squad that he currently has can bring the club the much desired glory of winning medals and trophies. TAFIC started the league with a 2-1 thrashing by defending champions Township Rollers at the Francistown Sports complex followed by a 0-0 draw against BDF XI.

Following their draw, they continued their league by holding Police XI to a one all draw only to redeem their league bragging rights by walloping Security Systems and Gilport Lions 2-1 respectively. Their woes continued when an over charged and injured Sharps Shooting Stars bamboozled them following a 2-0 sting by the current log leaders Township Rollers, a game which was allegedly marred by rough tackles which resulted in Popa’s player Joel Mogorosi fracturing his leg.
