COACH ERIC HAILS COLLECTIVE EFFORT THAT HELPED MAINTAIN PSL STATUS
     
   
 

Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler revealed that he will be sleeping much better now that his team are safe from relegation.
     
 

 

The Team of Choice notched up a third consecutive victory to ease past Royal Eagles in game three of their Premier Soccer League Promotion/Relegation Play-Offs to retain their Absa Premiership status for next season.

 

The Pietermaritzburg-based club scored in each half as they ran out 2-0 winners in Chatsworth.

 

It was a result that delighted coach Eric.

 

"Obviously very, very happy to get the job done," he said. "I've had a lot of sleepless nights but hopefully I can sleep now.

 

"I'm very, very proud of the players, the technical staff, the chairman, the fans. The fans have been absolutely phenomenal."
With their top-flight status confirmed for next season the KwaZulu-Natal capital can look forward to another campaign of Premiership football, something which coach Eric believes this community deserves.

 

"You know you wish you would see more clubs in the PSL with a fan base like this club hence this club doesn't deserve to go down," he adds.

 

Maritzburg have one final game in the play-offโ€™s against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in just two days time still to play.

 

Fans are urged to come in their numbers to get behind the team for the final game of what was a long and nervy season.

 

Kick-off at Harry Gwala Stadium is at 15h00.
