SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo had his full complement of players available for selection as he took advantage of Maritzburg United’s stuttering start to the season.

The Tshwane outfit are dusted themselves off after suffering defeat in their last outing, going down 2-1 to Orlando Pirates.

Tembo’s men set their sights on the Team of Choice, who currently find themselves languishing at the bottom of the DStv Premiership. The club recently parted ways with coach Eric Tinkler after losing all four of their league games this season.

“Look, a difficult game, it’s always difficult going to Maritzburg,” Tembo told SuperSport’s media department.

“We have to go there with the right attitude and the right mentality. I’ve seen at training that the attitude has been very good, and we are looking forward to the game, especially having everyone available so I’m quite happy about that,” he explained.

Tembo says it will be business as usual for his club who are focused on their own performance, rather than the recent events that have transpired at the KZN outfit.

“We are not really going to dwell too much and look to much on what is happening there. They’ve made changes so they will be motivated so it’s not going to be an easy game. We just have to go out there and play well and play our game,” Tembo said.

Meanwhile the coach will be beaming at the fact that he had a clean bill of health for his squad, going into the match at the Harry Gwala Stadium, a place popularly known for its ‘Friday Night Lights’. 

“We had a slight scare in terms of Bradley (Grobler) but he’s back now, he played against Pirates so he’s fully fit. Sipho (Mbule) also came back and Grant Kekana and there’s Luke Fleurs, everyone is available, so we have a full squad to select from,” Tembo concluded.
