Barker: We Can Upset Chiefs

University of Pretoria beat Free State Stars 3-1 at Tuks Stadium last night moving up to ninth position on the PSL table, silencing critics that last season’s PSL rookies will not survive in the top flight this season.

Tuks coach, Steve Barker, revealed to the Siya crew that his team will keep forging ahead following his win against AmaZulu and Bethlehem-based outfit, Stars.

“Well, winning our last two games is a huge relief for us as we were concerned following our loss to Polokwane City. We’ve scored five goals in the last two games so that’s something great for us as a team. We have got enough time to prepare for our next game against Chiefs, as you know they’re now doing very well, winning their last two games. We’re now confident of going to that game following our two wins and cause an upset,” the coach told Siya crew.

Asked about whether the break will give him and his team an advantage to get ready for Kaizer Chiefs, the Lesotho-born tactician said, it’s difficult to say whether it will work in his favour.

“We’re happy as we’re now up the table at position nine because we were at the bottom of the standings, it’s a very difficult league this season. There’s no easy game but we want to be in the top eight, we need to keep fighting and pushing. The most important thing is to keep trusting and believing in our ability. We can’t complain about the long break, whether it will kill our momentum or not but we must use it to our advantage to get the desired results,” added Barker.

Tuks travel to Soccer City Stadium for a meeting with Kaizer Chiefs on December 14.
