Township Rollers have vowed to reverse the 2-1 score line they suffered against Kaizer Chiefs in Johannesburg when they sides meet in the Caf Champions League second leg in Botswana on Saturday.

Rollers captain Sekhana Koko says they would be forced to bring results out of the game, or else they will booted out of the competition.

“I pray that they start with the same line-up, with the players we want to play against,” Koko told Botswana’s Daily News.

Koko added that the morale was high in the camp and every player was looking forward to play Chiefs in the second leg.

Meanwhile, Rollers coach Madinda Ndlovu said the technical team was aware what the game meant to the team and the Botswana nation at large.

“As for our preparations, we have covered quite a lot of ground, we have tried to work on our shortcomings, we have tried to look at the strongest aspect of the opponent and we have also worked on how we are going to explore those shortcomings.”

The teams meet at the National Stadium on Saturday at 3pm.
