Papic to work on his defence!

ROYAL Eagles coach Kosta Papic has vowed that his charges will continue their goal-scoring spree in the National First Division (NFD), where they are currently leading the scoring charts.

But Papic is now looking to tighten his defence.

The Serbian initially joined Eagles as a technical adviser in April, having previously been in charge of NFD rivals Black Leopards.

He took over as the head coach when Eagles parted ways with Bheka Phakathi, Abram Nteo and John Tlale, who were interim coaches.

Since he took over Eagles have been outstanding, scoring 26 goals in their first 10 games this season.

The free-scoring team hammered Milano United 4-2 at Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday.

Papic says they have found their killer instinct in front of goal but stressed that they still needed to improve their defence.

He said: “We are converting the chances we create. I’m impressed with it, but that is not enough. If we can score more than six goals in each game, that would be good for us. Defensively I’m not satisfied yet, we can do still better. We also need to keep clean sheets.

“This season we want promotion – and I know it’s not going to be easy. We will have to work hard for it, no team will do us any favours.”

Eagles’ next game will be on 26 November when they visit Mthatha Bucks at Mthatha Stadium after the Fifa international break.

  • In other matches played on Saturday, Leopards, who are now under new coach Sello Chokoe, lost 2-1 to Witbank Spurs at Puma Rugby Stadium, while Magesi, who also have a new coach in Shepherd Murape, drew 1-1 with Bucks.
