Richards Bay FC co-coach Pitso Dladla has predicted a difficult second round for the DStv Premiership rookies despite their good early season form.

The Natal Rich Boys host Cape Town City at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night hoping for maximum points following two successive draws against Orlando Pirates and Maritzburg United.

Prior to the midweek games, Richards Bay were tied on 19 points with log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, albeit having played two matches more.

Dladla is pleased with the progress after 11 rounds, which gives them a slight cushion in the months to come.

However with the half way mark of the campaign fast approaching, Dladla anticipates a tough finish to the season from December onwards.

“Ah, my brother this is Dstv Premiership it’s gonna be very tough, it’s gonna be tougher than this.”

“This why it’s important for us to collect points right now because second half teams they start to shape up, they start know what to play for, they start to know that ‘eey we must get out of the relegation zone, they start to know and say ‘let’s us go for top eight, let us go for top three by that time we need to have collected points that will put us in a respectful position, said Dladla.
