Tinkler Hails SuperSport's Defensive Effort

Tinkler Hails SuperSport's Defensive Effort

SuperSport United head coach, Eric Tinkler praised his side's defensive efforts after they defeated Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 in the MTN8.

Jeremy Brockie struck in the sixth to help SuperSport secure their spot in the semi-finals of the tournament.

Tinkler felt his charges couldn't match Chiefs' intensity and aggression, but he was pleased with the team's effort with defending.

"They showed a little bit more urgency than us, but that's only normal, they've had a proper full pre-season and a lot of competitive matches," Tinkler told SuperSport after the game.

"That was always going to be the fear, would we be able to match them in the urgency, aggression and intensity, and we didn't.

"We started really well, I thought defensively we were great, Morgan (Gould) I thought was phenomenal. Offensively out transition wasn't very good.

"We thought they would be looking to press us very high and we were always looking for that extra pass when we needed to get it out of those pressure zone. Unfortunately that but that is something we need to work on."

game plan is what needed free agents has nothing to do with the results those guys are trying bt without game plan & combination plan they will run like headless chickens & come with nothing our coach can't see who should play where with who & how he can't even see who doesn't perfom & why the only thing he is good at is notice those failer & talk after the match uyaminca lomntu he don't trust his decions uyoyika chiefs always plays good when is trailing & that doesn't mean we strong bt bcz opposition gave as ball to look for the space to hurt us nt say we strong no no no steve must fall

@City_Barca_Bucs, When Kekeana scored the goal of the season against the late Senzo, Tinkler was the coach.Inluding that 2-1 win over Bucs. Where Makola scored a wonder freekick!!

Yu can not use free material and expect something exceptional. In order to produce results yu have to buy players and gud ones and senior motaung knows dat,,,that's why he said in the past they made wrong signs which are free agents but bobby can't stop bringing them in to the club.

Chiefs is a boring team all they know is to buy cheap players and free agent and paid them small salary like bvuma they pay him 5000 per month

@Letona la Moletjie cowmphela did the same @ carling black label but you never complained .. Instead of fielding your New signings he opted on fielding defenders.. so it means eric is typical of steve

And yet you still proving to our visionless chairman that without any interference you can rise above anything.. How i so wish khoza will rid of those two rotten potatoes n re-appoint you as bucs coach.. N I'm sure you'll make wonders just like you will @ supersport.....
