MAGESI FC captain, Elvis Chipezeze, says they are not favourites for the Motsepe Foundation Championship even though they are top of the table.

With nine games to go. Magesi have their fate in their hands.

They are on a seven-match unbeaten run and one of the favourites for a promotion into the South African Premiership.

A 1-0 win over Black Leopards at Thohoyandou Stadium saw the club take their points tally to 39 points. 

The University of Pretoria are second with 38, while Orbit College are on 37 points.

“We are not favourites, we all know that AmaTuks have been in this division for a long time. Baroka also, Orbit is coming up,” he said.

“This is our second season in this division, so we are still learning. 

“To us, it is like the Cup finals, so, we just want to push and see where it’s going to take us.”

The 2018 Telkom Knockout winner has hailed the team spirit as a major factor in their promising campaign.

“You can see that the guys, who were not in the match-day squad, travelled to support the guys. 

“So, where there is unity, blessings will always be there. 

“That was the main focus when we started this campaign.

“We have to be together.

“Whether we are losing or winning, we have to be together. It’s unlike when someone is not in the squad and starts sulking and stuff like that. 

“I am just happy because the team spirit is on another level. Everyone is fighting for one another on the field of play, which is a good thing.” — FarPost.
