SUFC take on Chiefs

"The midweek win brought back our confidence and we are happy and looking forward to continue with the same attitude.

We are looking forward and prepared for our big match against Chiefs," said the United skipper Ronwen Williams.

This is going to be an exciting match to both sides as Williams and company will be facing his former coach Gavin Hunt who worked very closely with, including head coach Kaitano Tembo.

"It is not going to be an easy one, we know coach Gavin very well. He's a good coach, no doubt about that.  We worked very well together in the past and our relationship has always been a healthy one. 

We are focused and have watched their match against AmaZulu, and have worked on the game plan for Saturday, the mood is good and hopefully it can stay that way," said the captain.

Matsatsantsa are currently on position two below leaders Mamelodi Sundowns and they are separated by five points. On the other hand, hosts Chiefs will be battling to move out of the bottom half of the log table.

Matsatsantsa will rely heavily on travelled horses such as Bradley Grobler, Thami Gabuza, Sipho Mbule and Evans Rusike who had an assist in their last match.

"We are looking good and I hope we will put up a strong fight looking at the commitment of our squad members.

Evans Rusike just recovered from an injury and is a quality player but he went through a lot this season, he missed a lot of training sessions but he seems to be back to his best and enjoying himself, it’s always good to have hungry players like him,' concluded the captain.

In their first round meeting, United won 2-1.

A win for Matsatsantsa will see them narrowing the gap between them and cross-town rivals Sundowns.
