Slow start for Madinda


BOTSWANA’S be Mobile League reigning coach of the year Madinda Ndlovu has started the 2014 to 2015 season with Township Rollers on a slow note as he has won one out of the three games so far.


In the season opening match, the defending league champions were held to a 2-2 draw by Police X1, drew 1-1 with Extension Gunners, before they collected their first three points beating BDF X1 1-0 in the third match of the season.

Ndlovu rejoined Township Rollers in July last year and justified why they had brought him back into their books as he guided them to a title they had last won in the 2010 to 2011 season. It was a remarkable achievement for a side that had finished the 2012 to 2013 campaign on position eight from the 16-team league with 40 points.

Last season, Township Rollers started off slowly as they lost 0-1 to Extension Gunners at home in Gaborone on September 13 before losing 0-2 once again at home to Motlakase Power Dynamos in their next assignment.

However, they proved they were a force to reckon with in the league as they went 28 games unbeaten before eventually winning the title. Ndlovu won the Botswana league in the 2011 to 2012 and the 2012 to 2013 titles with Mochudi Centre Chiefs.

His former team is having a good start and tops the log table with nine points from three games in the season that started on August 10.

BMC are second with seven points although they have collected the same number of points as third placed Police X1 while Sankoyo Bush Bucks are fourth with six points from three games. Township Rollers are on position five with five points from three games.
