'If Maritzburg Fix The Defence, They Will Win The PSL'

Maritzburg United got their league campaign off to a thunderous start with a 1-0 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Free State. Many considered the Team of Choice to be one of the unluckiest teams last season. Can they turn things around?

Supporters Club caught up with Pietermaritzburg resident and United fan Ryan Holtes to see how he felt about the season opener:

"What a game and what a team we have on our hands. I truly believe that where we finished in the log last season was not even close to a true reflection of the quality in the team," he said.

"We played so well the whole of last year, we scored so many goals, we also conceded a lot and that is the unfortunate part. But what we did well, at least, was entertain the fans. I love taking my family to Harry Gwala Stadium, and I am going to do it again this season.

"So if we score a lot of goals and concede a lot of goals, what does that tell you? It tells you we need to shape up our defence. If Ernst Middendorp can get that defence sorted, then I have every faith in the attacking force of that team to make magic happen. Mark my words: If Maritzburg fix the defence, they will win the PSL."

Do you think Maritzburg are one solid defensive line away from being a championship team?
