Ntuli Hopes For Birthday Points

Golden Arrows striker Bonginkosi Ntuli, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Friday, will be hoping to get a present in the form of three points against Wits on Saturday night.

Abafana Bes’thende will also be out to get revenge on the Clever Boys, who beat them 1-0 at Bidvest Stadium in the first round of the season. However, Arrows did overcome Gavin Hunt’s side in the Telkom Knockout, which was Manqoba Mngqithi’s last game in charge of the Durban-based side.

Ntuli score a brace that evening and will be hoping to torment the Wits defence and help his side and move a step closer to relegation survival. Wits are seeking for a top three finish after slipping out of the league race in recent weeks, but Arrows could prove to be a banana skin at King Zwelithini Stadium.

“I can’t see a reason why I can’t repeat what I did to them in the cup earlier this season. I won’t be treating their defence any differently to other teams’ defences. We know it’s tough times for us, but we have hope. We must just be positive. I really hope that I will get a belated birthday present on the day because we badly need the points,” he told the Siya crew.

Asked if there were any carrots dangled in front of them by management in a bid to motivate the players to escape the dreaded axe, the Pietermaritzburg-born striker said, “We have spoken about the situation as players, without involving the management. We have to get ourselves out of this situation. The management hasn’t said anything regarding bonuses or anything like that.”
