Harrison Hoping For Favour

Chippa United coach, Mark Harrison, admits it was a tough game as his side ran out 1-0 winners over Santos in a Promotion/Relegation Play-off match at the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and is now hoping his local rivals can do them a favour.

The result saw Chippa up to four points in the mini-league format and still in with a chance of making it to the Absa Premiership next season as they sit two points behind MP Black Aces.

For Santos they will play another season in the National First Division, but despite that fact Harrison is hoping they can do his side a favour when they meet Aces next weekend.

Chippa, though, will first have to do the business when they meet Aces this coming Wednesday where a loss would signal the end of their promotion hopes.

“It was a tough game – a local derby as well as a relegation/promotion scrap,” said Harrison after the match.

“It was a battle for 90 minutes and both teams gave everything they had.

“They might have had most of the possession but we created the better chances. We got the goal and that made them come at us, but we stood our ground and defended the box very well.

“We deserved the win.                                                                

“We have another massive game coming on Wednesday night and we have to win that one.

“We have to win that one, it is that simple and if we do we are in with a fighting chance. After that we have to hope that Santos can go to Aces and do a professional job.”
