Tough Tuks task for NRB on Sunday

IT’S not quite ‘Day Zero’ for Richards Bay FC but the matches are starting to run out and the fans are thirsty for points.

Currently second from bottom on the National First Division log, the NRB boys have eight games left with more than enough points in the offing to lift them to mid-table.

They have been desperately unfortunate to surrender points in their last two games after conceding late goals after the 90 minutes.

The revival must start at the uMhlathuze Stadium on Sunday when they host Pretoria University, a side that has blown hot and cold over the season.

With home ground advantage, Jean Losciuto’s charges will look to break their goal drought and attempt to open the flood gates by converting the ample opportunities they habitually create.

There are only three points separating six sides in the relegation skirmish and all will be fighting equally hard to retain their NFD status.

Three points on Sunday will make a world of difference as they look ahead to make the most of a favourable run-in to the season’s closure.

Their remaining opponents are:

• 17 March vs TTM (2nd) away;

• 31 March vs Jomo Cosmos (4th) home;

• 8 April vs Mthatha Bucks (16th) away;

• 14 April vs Super Eagles (12th) home;

• 21 April vs Black Leopards (5th) away;

• 29 April vs Ubuntu FC (14th) home;

• 6 May vs Mbombela (10th) away.

Richards Bay do have a Last 16 Nedbank Cup encounter to contest against Bloemfontein Celtic but rest assured all their focus will be on the league and they will not be distracted.
