SOCCER – BASEMENT placed side in the MTN Premier League log standings Midas City are still adamant their quest to contest the 14-team league will succeed.

When interviewed yesterday, the team’s legal representative advocate Bongani ‘Bhanyaza’ Mdluli said the team would make sure they fight tooth and nail against the14-team league.

He said he was very much sure they would not be relegated at the end of the season.

“We have been clear from the start with this. We will continue contesting against the 14-team league until football justice is served.

“We are very certain with the fact that we will not be relegated. Until we get a letter from the Premier League of Swaziland (PLS), which we are sure we will not receive, then we will still be in the league.” he said.

Furthermore, Mdluli added that the team would honour all its fixtures, but they weren’t under-pressure for results because they were still building a team to compete in the elite league next season.

“We have a youthful squad and the boys are hungry for success. We have been unfortunate to have such a terrible start, otherwise, this is a good team. This, however, is not the end of the world, because by next year, this will be a very strong team that will be ready to compete in the Premier League.”

Coming to our match against Swallows tonight, Mdluli said they  will approach it just like all the other matches and play for a win.

“There’s no added pressure. We know we will not be relegated not because we are defiant but because of football laws.”

Meanwhile, Midas City will take on Mbabane Swallows tonight at Somhlolo National Stadium.
