Tinkler To Ring Changes As SSU Switch Focus

Eric Tinkler is expected to make changes to his starting XI tomorrow night as SuperSport United look to bounce back from their CAF Confederation Cup final defeat.
 
 
Tinkler’s side was held to a 0-0 draw at home against TP Mazembe over the weekend as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat on aggregate, with the Congolese giants retaining the trophy after winning it last season.
 
Now, as Matsatsantsa begin their battle to catch up on games missed in the Absa Premiership – they have seven games in hand on leaders, Baroka FC, Tinkler is preparing to take on Ajax Cape Town in their first league game since October. 
 
 
Speaking to the media at the weekend, he said, “I am looking for a positive response. We’ll see if we can get that in the next couple of days when we play against Ajax. Then you will know how it has affected the team, emotionally and psychologically.
 
“Obviously we plan to make quite a few changes for that game because we have brought in quite a number of new faces into the squad. I think that we need to refresh this squad a little bit. Now we can really start focusing on our league campaign. That becomes the main objective right now.”
 
SuperSport host Ajax at Mbombela Stadium.
