NGEZI Platinum coach Erol Akbay says they cannot be defeated by the same team twice and is looking forward to a positive result against Tringale at Baobab today.
The platinum miners lost 2-1 to the Lowveld side in the reverse fixture at Gibbo.
Akbay, however, said they are looking for a revenge.
“We will be banking on the home advantage this time around. I am optimistic a win is attainable. I don’t lose twice to the same opponent.
“We are not the team they defeated in the first half, we have improved and this time around they are the ones who have to match us.
“We are looking for a positive result in our second half campaign,” said Akbay.
Both teams have been impressive of late – with Ngezi going for ten games without defeat while Triangle are enjoying an eight-game unbeaten run.
Ngezi welcome back midfielder Kelvin Bulaji, who has been out for six weeks due to a groin injury.
“It’s a head ache selection for me, everyone is fit and ready. We will introduce two of our new signings in this game.
“I have assembled a strong squad and we will keep on trying to play the same way and determine the pace of the game.
“We have to score more goals and defend well just like we have been doing in our previous games,” he added.
Akbay said he is anticipating a tight contest describing Triangle as an equally good opponent.
“The game is not going to be an easy one. It is about the survival of the fittest.
“We all want to have a little bit of consistency. It will be a good game, both teams have been in form.
“We will stand our ground and avoid them from walking over us,” he said.
