We will be looking to pick up maximum points – Furman

The defeat against Chippa before Christmas break is still fresh in our memory and we need to use that as a motivator going into this game.

After our recent defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns, it is now key how we bounce back. We will be looking to pick up maximum points in order to keep pushing up the table.

Teboho “Tebza” Mokoena is a big player for us and of course his presence and quality were missed in the middle of the park against Sundowns. I thought Siya Nhlapo had a solid display in the middle and broke up several attacks from Sundowns. We are glad Tebza is back now and hope he will come back refreshed after missing the last game. 

The Nedbank Cup is very important to us and a tournament we have had some great success in recent years.  It is a very tough draw for the first round, but the Tshwane derby is always a great game and one needs to look forward to. We will be looking to turn our league defeat around (against Sundowns) and hopefully advance to the next round. 

Group G in the FIFA World Cup preliminary draw is a very tough group. We know Ghana very well after our recent clash in the AFCON qualifiers and they are undoubtedly one of the top sides on the continent. We also know Zimbabwe well as many of their players are playing in the PSL and we know the quality they possess. We played Ethiopia in the World Cup qualifiers a few years ago and it is a very hostile place to play in. We are highly motivated to qualify for the World Cup and I believe we have the quality in South Africa to do so.
