Tinkler – Every Team In This League Is Beatable

Cape Town City head coach Eric Tinkler believes that this past weekend proved that every team in the DStv Premiership is beatable, including unbeaten Mamelodi Sundowns.

City played to a 1-1 draw with TS Galaxy and missed a chance to 100% secure their place in the top eight. They remain seventh in the league with 39 points, and need three more points to secure their top-eight spot.

Tinker was asked about facing unbeaten Sundowns on the last day of the season and made examples of Stellenbosch’s unbeaten league run being ended by Moroka Swallows, and Orlando Pirates losing to Richards Bay.

“Every team in this league is beatable, we saw that on the weekend everybody is beatable,” Tinkle told the media.

“Stellies after the run they had, was unbelievable. They looked good, they lost to Swallows.

“You saw the Pirates game, everyone is talking about Pirates finishing second and they end up losing to Richards Bay.

“I think everybody is beatable on the day, including Sundowns.”
