Lobatse outfit Extension Gunners make their Mascom Top 8 debut against Gaborone United (GU) at the national stadium this weekend. Gunners who have been blowing hot and cold in the first round of the 2017/18 premier league season will be going into the game as underdogs given the fact that GU have already won the tournament on two occasions. Gunners’ taciturn headcoach Tumie Duiker is under no illusion that they can win the tournament in their first attempt. “It is the wish of any coach to win a cup competition.

GU are a good side and they have already beat us 1-0 this season,” he said. Duiker who seems content with his current squad said he will be looking work improve his attack towards the weekend encounter. Mapantsula of Peleng will be going into the weekend game buoyed by an emphatic 2-0 victory over Mankgodi’s Black Forest. The games attended by a handful of supporters provided a glimpse of what ‘Guna Guna’ will be bringing to the Top 8. Against Forest Duiker kept his most experienced players in the bench and fielded younger and more fluid players.

The likes of Kenanao 'Flo' Kgetholetsile and Ofentse Mmipi only came in the second half of the game and made an immediate impact. Mmipi scored an easy penalty goal while the experienced Kgetholetsile finished off Forest with a brilliant second goal. Moreover Duiker said he was unsure whether he will boost his squad with fresh legs this coming transfer window.
