Maritzburg United go into tonight's league clash against Chippa United without head coach Ernst Middendorp after his sudden resignation last week. The Team of Choice head into the encounter after a loss in their previous league match, against Cape Town City. Now, with Fadlu Davids temporarily at the helm, the Pietermaritzburg side are looking to better their home record.
Speaking to Supporters Club, Maritzburg faithful Dan dos Santos shared his thoughts on the upcoming clash against the Chilli Boys.
"Looking at the game tonight, the team is fired up!" he said.
"After the departure of the coach I think every player will play their hearts out to try and impressive whoever will take the head coaching post.
"If I had to give a prediction, I would say that we will win this game by two goals to one.
Here's what he had to say about the departure of coach Middendorp.
"I'm very, very disappointed!" he added.
"We expected him to carry on with the team because he had a good team of players and they seemed to have had an understanding.
"The team's performance was starting to improve.
"But now we just have to move on and do our best without him."
