About the criteria for the players to play next month, it’s a bit tricky because we are coming from the offseason, most of them started preseason four weeks ago.

Loga had wanted to infuse some of the fringe players who did duty at the recent COSAFA Cup tournament in South Africa, into the main Warriors squad.
