Barker: Top 8 Massive Bonus

Following his side’s 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, the University of Pretoria coach Steve Barker confirms that finishing in the top eight of the Absa Premiership is a huge bonus for the club.

The three points saw Tuks finish on 40 points for the season, coupled with Moroka Swallows 1-1 draw with Bloemfontein Celtic, which saw the Pretoria team sneak into the last position in the top eight.

Barker, though, says it was never their plan to make the top eight, but as the season progressed they believed it was possible.

“We have maintained from the start of the season we wanted to finish as high as possible in the league. There was no mandate set or position we set ourselves to finish, it was just to finish as high as possible,” said Barker.

“The objective of finishing in the top eight only came about mid-way through the season when we knew it was possible.

“The top eight is a massive bonus for the club.”

In the Kaizer Chiefs camp, assistant coach Doctor Khumalo admitted his side were outplaye dint he second 45

“They were better in the second half and caught us flat at the back. Tuks had a better game plan in the second half,” said Khumalo
