TINKLER PLEASED WITH WORKMANLIKE PERFORMANCE
     
   
 

Maritzburg United coach Eric Tinkler heaped praise on his players for a stellar performance in their victory over SuperSport United on Saturday afternoon.
     
 

 

The Team of Choice ran out 3-1 winners to bolster their Absa Premirship survival chances.

 

Mohau Mokate gave them an early lead, before Aubrey Modiba levelled at the start of the second half. However, it was Judas Moseamedi who would come off the bench to score a brace and secure the three points for United.




The win coupled with last week’s triumph in Thohoyandou over Black Leopards meant that the Pietermaritzburg oufit recorded back-to-back victories for the first time this season.

 

“I’m very happy with for the players," coach Eric said. "The amount of work they put in. Fortune (Makaringe) today was fantastic, Mbesuma (Siphesihle Ndlovu), (Yannick) Zakri worked his socks off and gave us a lot of creativity. The defenders were very good throughout the 90 minutes and overall, I’m very happy.”

 

The former Orlando Pirates and Cape Town City manager has made huge strides since taking over, winning five times in 11 games but is keeping his feet on the ground ahead of a crunch last game against Baroka FC on the final day.

 

"I’m delighted with the win but it doesn’t change anything really," coach Eric adds. "We still have to go to Baroka and win. We knew that and I know my players will be highly motivated for that game."

 

The team will travel on Thursday to Limpopo and clash with Baroka FC at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon.

 

Victory will guarantee a play-off place at best if all other results go against the Team of Choice, while a draw could also keep them up if Free State Stars, Black Leopards or Chippa United drop points in their final games.
