Jwaneng Galaxy have set their sights on winning the Botswana Premier League (BPL) title for the first time in the club's history.

The Jwaneng-based club recently clinched the 2016/17 Mascom Top 8 Cup after beating Orapa United in an exciting final.

Galaxy are under the guidance of accomplished Zambian tactician Mike Sithole, who has won the BPL title with Gaborone United and Mochudi Centre Chiefs.

However, Galaxy club chairman Njabulo Gilika has insisted that they are taking each game as it comes.

"The league is a marathon, so we will be taking each game as it comes," Gilika told The Patriot.

Galaxy are currently placed second on the league table with 47 points. They are only two points behind log leaders Township Rollers with seven matches left.

"We will not be pressurising ourselves to win the league,” he said.

“Any team that could have started with such opposition would have found themselves at the position we were."

Galaxy qualified for the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup after winning this season's Mascom Top 8 Cup.
