Subs ready to redeem themselves against J Bay Milan.
Port Elizabeth soccer side Highbury aim to remain in the title race when they host Mthatha Bucks in a key Safa Eastern Cape ABC Motsepe league match at the Gelvandale Stadium today (7pm).
Highbury dropped two crucial points when they played to a 1-1 draw against Real City last weekend and will need to regain their winning touch to keep their aspirations alive.
Highbury coach Garth Dickinson said they would take the game to Bucks to mobilise home support after the league’s festive season break.
“We are a good team and we expect to collect maximum points in most of our remaining league matches,” Dickinson said. “It was just a silly mistake to concede a goal against City.
“We are not going to change our game plan against the visitors; we will keep attacking them from the start.
“I have been impressed with the high performance of the players in training, but we will need to have better concentration during the game.”
Dickinson said they would be facing tough opponents and would need a brave performance to succeed in front of their home fans.
