Tigers’ winning run under new coach Ronnie Kanalelo came to an end on Wednesday when they lost 1-0 to Civics at the Sam Nujoma Stadium. In an evenly balanced match, Civics substitute striker Lindon Aseb scored the only goal on 71 minutes when he volleyed home a cross by captain Heini Isaacs.
Tigers had the better of the first half as they threw everything into the attack from the start. With left wing Aluta Sheya providing some inviting crosses, Pineas Jacob, Kenny Malgas and Junior Gebhardt all made their presence felt.
Civics will stick with their coach, Ali Akan, despite the team's disastrous start to the Namibia Premier League (NPL) 2010/11 season.
Civics has so far played seven matches and lost four with two wins and one draw and have seven points. As a result they are 11th on the log with the same number of points as bottom placed Mighty Gunners.
Civics manager, Paul Stramis said that even though they find themselves near the bottom, they will not be looking for a new coach.
The Namibian selectors have named a strong 14-man squad to take on Kwazulu Natal Inland in their Cricket South Africa Challenge competition at the Wanderers field in Windhoek this weekend.
The two sides will play the three-day challenge from Thursday to Saturday, while the 40-over-a-side one day challenge will take place on Sunday.
The squad has depth in all areas and the selectors’ biggest problem could be who to leave out.
