Malesela Remains Unsure Of First XI

Following his side's loss to Orlando Pirates, Chippa United head coach Dan Malesela admits he is yet to figure out his best starting line-up.

The Chilli Boys remain winless in the 2018-2019 Absa Premiership season after losing 1-0 to the Buccaneers on Wednesday evening.

Chippa bolstered their squad with 15 signings in the off-season and Malesela admits they are still trying to find the right combinations.

“The one man they lost gave us an advantage but if it’s not going to work it’s not going to work,” Malesela told SuperSport after the game.
 
“But we tried I hope this will encourage the boys to say look we can compete, this is a fairly new team so we’ll get it right slowly and slowly.”
 
“I wouldn’t say I’m close [to getting the cohesive unit] but I have to work very fast to get it right. We just need to get the right combinations at the top, that would work for us but at the moment it’s dicey. We’re not sure who to play first and who to play as a substitute.
 
“Inasmuch as you’d want to start well you also need a good bench. So we need to be careful, unfortunately we don’t have the luxury of having too many friendlies with quality teams, then that would be where we test different combinations and see the way forward."
