HUMILITY IS KEY, SAYS COACH ERIC
     
   
 

Confidence, tempered with humility, is the mindset head coach Eric Tinkler is looking for from the Maritzburg United contingent as they gear up for Saturday’s showdown with Cape Town City.
     
 

 

The Absa Premiership encounter at the Athlone Stadium (3.30pm kick off) comes on the back of the Team of Choice’s 3-1 home win over Polokwane City in their most recent match.

 

That game was on February 8, which has given Tinkler and his technical team two weeks to prepare for the clash with his former club, Cape Town City.

 

Included in this period has been a small break for the players to recharge their batteries and clear their minds before a crucial period of fixtures for the KZN Capital City club.




“I was happy for the players, for the club. I allowed the players the weekend off to go and celebrate the [Polokwane] win, I think it was very important for them to switch off a little bit, be with the family, and then come back and refocus,” Tinkler explained.

 

“We need a lot more wins to ensure our safety, because we are nowhere near that yet. But that was a positive start, it builds the motivation and the morale and the confidence of the team and you can see the mood swing since that result, there has been a positive mood in training.

 

“But what becomes very important, and I have told the players, is humility,” the coach underlined.

 

“The Polokwane win is a step in the right direction but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to guarantee our safety. Unfortunately with our situation we have to rely on others to drop points, so we still have a lot of work to do.”
