CLEVER BOYS AWAIT MARITZBURG IN THE 2019 TKO
     
   
 

Maritzburg United have been handed a home tie against Bidvest Wits in this year’s Telkom Knockout (TKO) cup competition, the game set to take place on Friday 18 October, 8pm kick off.

     
 

 

The draw took place in Randburg on Wednesday afternoon and sees a repeat of the opening round of the 2018 TKO, when Maritzburg lost 2-1 to the Students at the Harry Gwala Stadium.

 

Wits, the club where Maritzburg head coach Eric Tinkler both played and coached, are currently flying high and are in second spot on the league standings following four consecutive wins.

 

The Team of Choice though have also shown good form of late having claimed six points from their last two league matches.

 

For Tinkler, the timing of the Telkom Knockout competition is good: with the recent positive results, the Maritzburg players can go out and express themselves in the cup without too much pressure.

 

“First and foremost, the league has to take precedent - let's get that job done (in recent Absa Premiership encounters)…and the players got the job done which is a good thing,” he said.

 

“It bodes well, because it builds the confidence. With the wins, the confidence grows.

 

“I explained to the players, here is a competition (the TKO) that with [the recent league victories], we can seriously consider looking to try and give it a go in the Cup.”
