Cape Town - Polokwane City head coach Luc Eymael reveals that he'd like to guide his charges to a top-eight finish in the Premiership, but admits it will be tough.
Rise and Shine were unlucky to draw their most recent league tie against Orlando Pirates, having conceded in stoppage-time in addition to missing numerous chances and Eymael believes they are on course to finish in the top half of the league this season.
"I think we are on a good track and the target is to reach the top eight and we have to take one game at the time," he told KickOff.
"We have to go one step at a time and continue to work hard. The next game is against Mamelodi Sundowns [in the Telkom Knockout] and very difficult because you know I have a thin squad in terms of quality.
"It's not like Pirates. Pirates if they want to they can play 43 players of approximately the same level and me I don't have that and I will be obliged to make some rotation."
Eymael also revealed that forwards Rodney Ramagalela and Thobani Mncwango picked up knocks against Pirates and are doubtful for the cup tie against Pisto Mosimane's men.
"Now I have problem with Ramagalela and a problem with Thobani and those two are very important players," he added.
"I hope that they will be fit for that game against Sundowns."
