Tinkler: This Was A Massive One For Many Reasons

Cape Town City head coach Eric Tinkler says their win over Kaizer Chiefs was a "massive one for many reasons" after handing the Soweto giants their fourth straight loss.

The Citizens edged Chiefs 2-1 thanks to early goals in either half by Craig Martin and Terrence Mashego.

Tinkler was asked what was key to their turnaround in the second round of the campaign, as they remained unbeaten this calendar year.

"First and foremost the changes that we made [in the January transfer window], brought in some fresh faces, some hunger, the desire," the City coach told SuperSport after the game.

"Our intensity in training has increased threefold and you see it from the performances on the field, the guys are hungry to want to achieve things and that's what we want at Cape Town City, we want to achieve things.

"We want to fight for that top-four position and that was the major change, like I said, the unity among everyone at the club right now is very high."

The rescheduled game against Chiefs was surrounded by controversy and Tinkler added more to it by saying it "was a massive one for many reasons" after getting the maximum points.

"But we still have four very important games coming up, this was a massive one for many reasons but I won't go into that.

"But we have a game against Chippa in three days' time, now is all about recovery, consistency, not complacency leading up to that match."
