Chippa United coach Lehlohonolo Seema is confident that the Gqeberha-based club can still keep their top-flight status despite finishing the season second last on the DStv Premiership log.
Following their 1-1 draw against SuperSport United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, the Chilli Boys finished the season in 15th place and will be playing in the promotion/relegation play-offs to try and save their topflight status.
Speaking after the match, Seema welcomed the opportunity to compete with two teams from the GladAfrica Championship to save the club's topflight status through the play-offs.
“It’s a 1-1 draw that we can take, it’s okay. At least we tried and did not loser the last match of the season, however we have to prepare for the play-offs now. There’s life and there’s fight that we are looking at in a very serious way, because it’s not everyone who gets a second chance. The guys (players) are disappointed, but they know there’s still life to go and fight and come back,” said Seema, speaking through the club’s media department.
