WITS ARE CHAMPIONSHIP MATERIAL - DAVIDS
5 May 2017
Maritzburg United’s next assignment is away to ‘on fire’ Bidvest Wits this coming Sunday.
The students are three points clear off contenders Mamelodi Sundowns on top of the log, after the Brazilians played level on 2-2 with Platinum Stars, whilst Wits disposed of the Buccaneers by a solitary goal on Thursday night.
United will be facing a team that will be highly motivated after last night’s result.
“Wits are championship material. They are a quality side. They believe the league is there for the taking now so they will do everything not to let it slip. We go into this game as underdogs and it’s going to be a difficult game for us”, said Maritzburg United Head Coach Fadlu Davids.
The Team of Choice derailed Cape Town City’s championship hopes by beating The Citizens 1-0 at home on Worker’s day.
“Yes we are on track with our target to finish in the Top Eight, but we have not achieved that yet. More work still needs to be done, and we have to face the challenges ahead to achieve our target,” concluded Davids.
