TINKLER PLEASED WITH LEOPARDS WIN
     
   
 

Maritzburg United coach Eric Tinkler described their victory over Black Leopards on Saturday as 'huge' in their quest for survival.
     
 

 

Mohau Mokate's strike and an own goal ten minutes into the second half ensured the visitors walked away with three valuable points on the road.

 

The result for the Team of Choice in Thohoyandou was just their second win away from the Harry Gwala Stadium all season and coach Eric Tinkler has highlighted the importance of the weekend's results in the context of the relegation battle.

 

"It was a huge victory for the club," he said. "We are very happy to claim the three points and we will take it into the next game now.

 

"It was important to win and it also dragged a few other teams into the mix so we still have faith."

 

United have five days to prepare for a visit of SuperSport United in what is the final home game of the season for the Pietermaritzburg based outfit.

 

They remain a point behind Chippa United after the Port Elizabeth side fell to defeat against Cape Town City last Friday night.

 

"We have a couple days of rest now before we start preparing for SuperSport," coach Eric added. "It's another massive game, our last at home and we need our fans to come out in their numbers like they have been doing so."

 

Kick-off against Matsatsantsa is at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon.


  Mohau Mokate: "The conditions in Venda is very difficult. It took character to come away from there with the victory. We played as soldiers because we knew what to expect from them. This win will build the confidence in the team ahead of the SuperSport game."
