Mngqithi said things are likely to come down to which player would be most suitable to the game that they want to play against Petro.

“That will require a lot of work from us as coaches because in profiling the opponent we really have to cut it down to the bone,” the coach said. “We really need to understand who will be suitable for that type of opposition and vis-à-vis the type of individuals that Petro has.

“It’s going to be a very big headache, but on the side of the players they will go with their chins high hoping to also do well, which is very positive.
