Hartog: Its in the attitude
13 February 2015
Captain Ashley Hartog is rallying his troops to up their efforts and commitment levels ahead of their crunch encounter with Chippa United in PE on Saturday.
The Team of Choice head in to the game on the back of a 2-1 loss to Bidvest Wits, and Hartog is hoping that his side can turn what has been a bit of a slump in results around with a positive result against the Chilli Boys.
“Its going to be a tough game, we’re up against our former coach In Ernst Middendorp, and so I expect it to be a very different Chippa side from the one that we played last year in Pietermaritzburg in the first round game,” Hartog told www.maritburgunited.co.za.
“I expect he has worked on a lot of tactical and technical issues and we can expect a very different side. But I think we are good enough to beat Chippa. It’s about going in to the game with the right attitude – we must be up for the fight, ready to challenge for every ball, and ready to lose blood for the team’s cause if that’s what it takes.
“If we can up the intensity of our attitudes, and get it right in front of goal in terms of taking more chances, I have every reason to believe we can get a good result on Saturday.”
