Maritzburg United defender, Thabang Matuka, says the club are on a high following their 3-1 win over SuperSport United this week.
The Team of Choice take on Golden Arrows today, and will be confident of grabbing three more points against the team currently propping up the PSL table.
Speaking to the Siya crew, Matuka explained that they’re eager to pick up another win. He said, “Going into the game on the back of a win against SuperSport has given us lots of confidence. We’re highly motivated and are aiming to reach all of our goals.”
Matuka also heaped praise on the work that Komphela has done since arriving at the team, saying, “The coach prepares us mentally. For me he is a coach, but also a motivator, a father and a life teacher. With him it’s all about life in general and then the football, they go hand in hand.
“The talent and effort has always been there, it’s been mostly problems mentally.”
A win over Abafana Bes’thende would put a 17-point gap between the two sides, massively increasing their chances of survival.
