SuperSport United Head Coach Kaitano Tembo is expecting a tough game today against a very hardworking and speedy Stellenbosch team.
The two teams meet in the DStv Premiership at the DC (Danie Craven) Stadium in Stellenbosch.
Tembo says they have been fortunate to have a little extra time to prepare for this game, and he gave players some time off to re-energize.
The SuperSport coach warns that Stellenbosch can be a dangerous team, and have some good hard working and fast players.
“Well look, we gave the guys a little bit of time off because I think we never really had an opportunity to do that,” Tembo told the club’s media department.
“So after our last game we had about two weeks to prepare for the next game which is against Stellenbosch.”
“So now the players are looking a little bit more energetic. There is a bit of sharpness now back into the team, there is energy which we lacked in our past few games, so hopefully, I think we’ll be ready to play Stellenbosch, an improved Stellenbosch team, that has been doing well in their past three games.”
“We know there’s only one thing you got to match, especially when we play against a team like Stellenbosch.”
“They’re a very hardworking team, with very good runners, with (Ashley) Du Preez, (Lelethu) Skelem, (Deano) Van Rooyen, and they’re all speedy players who have got a very good work ethic as well as in midfield with (Ibraheem) Jabaar, the Nigerian and Nathan Sinkala, but I think we ready, we are in a good space now.”
“Though there are few injuries here and there but I think we’ve got a team, a squad to go out there and do the business against Stellenbosch.”
