CONFIDENT UNITED RESERVE SIDE TAKE ON SUNDOWNS
19 January 2017
Maritzburg United MDC team did a good demolition job of Lamontville Golden Arrows last Saturday, beating the defending Champions 3-0.
The boys from the KZN Capital City were in great form and dominated Abafana bes’Thende the entire 90 minutes and for their efforts, they moved up from seventh to fifth position on the log.
On target for the Team of Choice Diski side in the Arrows win were Mlondi Dlamini (32), Mohau Mokate (pictured above, 56th) and Fortune Makaringe (90th minute).
This Saturday they take on log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who are six points clear ahead of the Team of Choice. Coach Mahier Davids is happy that they have started winning again.
“We have been dropping points, so it was important to get back to winning ways, and we did so emphatically against the defending Champions,” he said.
When asked if it concerns him that Sundowns are current log leaders, he responded: "It doesn’t matter who we play. We don’t have to focus on Sundowns, we have to focus on ourselves, what we can do on the day. If we go into this game with the same approach and attitude we demonstrated against Arrows, we can get the result.”
