22 August 2018 – First Touch Academy forward Jeanet Fisher believes her team shouldn’t rest on their laurels after winning all of their 19 league games this season.
Fresh from hammering Mandebele Happy Fighters 6-0 last week for their nineteenth win in as many games this season, Fisher dismissed suggestions that the leaders might lose their focus.
“That is not going to happen,” the 29-year-old said, when asked if a slacking off might occur with First Touch now 8 points clear and averaging 3.8 goals in their last 10 games.
“The manager is so demanding on us. We can lose, we can drop points but complacency never happened in the past, the present or the future. Winning all our 19 games gives us a lot of confidence,” Fisher said.
Mandebele Happy Fighters Head Coach, Hendrick Kekana, who also had to see his side succumb to a masterclass 6-0 defeat which ensured his side remain outside of the top half of the table, heaped some praise on First Touch.
“For me, First Touch are one of the best sides I’ve ever come across,” said Kekana, who is preparing to face eighth-placed University of Limpopo this weekend.
“So many good athletes, so many intelligent footballers and it’s really hard to pin them down.”
So hard indeed that only Ma-Indies Ladies and Moria Sweepers FC, in the Limpopo Sasol League, this season have managed to score against them since Seven Stars did so six months ago.
