Barker Praises Stellies' Debutants After Downs Draw

Stellenbosch FC coach Steve Barker hailed the performance of debutant Athenkosi Mcaba against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday evening.

The 19-year-old made his first start in the DStv Premiership and completed the full 90 minutes as Stellies drew 1-1 with the defending league champions at Danie Craven Stadium.

“I think our principle with the way we look at things doesn’t change much, but you know to give Athenkosi (Mcaba) a debut for me was really superb. A lot of good things for him to come," Barker told SuperSport aftert the gaeme.

“Solomon Letsoenyo the left-back applied himself really well. All in all, pleased yes we knew we needed a little bit of front-foot play if they did play into the pockets.

“So, the left and right centre-backs needed to come in and apply pressure which I thought they did really well so for me a good performance from the lads.

“It’s important that we continue and take this to the next games. Important that Wednesday at home against SuperSport (United) we apply ourselves again but hopefully with the weather conditions we can play a little bit more."
