Marques aiming for at least a playoff spot
Jan 8th, 2016 - 15:41
Santos coach Zeca Marques are aiming for at least a playoff position when the National First Division resumes this weekend.

Santos host the PE based side Mthatha Bucks on January 12th in the Athlone Stadium in the f1rst game of 2016

The People's Team is definitely a different kettle of fish since Marques took over the reins at the beginning of the season - more organised and resilient in defence.

The Lansdowne based side played their last friendly match - a 1-0 victory over Hellenic - yesterday after wrapping up their preparations after the festive period.

"We are at least looking to finish in the top three which will secure us a playoff spot,” Marques told our website.

"If we can win the league, it is a bonus, who knows? Nothing is impossible. "

“The confidence and enthusiasm is there and the payers are starting to believe in themselves.

"It will be important to create the winning culture at the club and to build on that.

Marques said he also expects to strengthen his squad when during the transfer window which currently open.

"I think we are one of the smallest squads with 21 or 22 players.

"In my opinion, we still need with two or three players to give us the necessary depth and balance," Marques concluded.
