Head Coach, Dan Malesela remains upbeat; “The FIFA break gave us an opportunity to go back to the training ground and find solutions.
“We are fully focused on the next challenge. We need to knuckle down and show the hunger to win games again. We lacked a bit of effort against Bidvest Wits and at the end that was a difference between ourselves and them.
Malesela continued; “We have a responsibility all of us here to defend the Chippa United emblem and take this project to greater heights. We have reminded the players of their bit on the field of play.
“We are playing at home and our objective when we take the field is to win and it will not be different on Saturday.
Our supporters will come out in numbers and I would like to thank them on behalf of the Club for their support through thick and thin. We have received encouraging messages through our media platforms and people showing their support to our work. We want to give back to them (the fans). We want them to smile when they travel back home,” added Malesela.
