SuperSport's Alexander braced for competition with Letsholonyane, Furman and Morton

Cole Alexander is well aware he faces fierce competition for game-time in midfield from fellow SuperSport United newcomer Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Dean Furman and the industrious Michael Morton.
Alexander joined Matsatsantsa from Polokwane City in the off-season, and is naturally eager to win the favour of coach Stuart Baxter in Tshwane.
The former Ajax Cape Town man featured off the bench in place of Morton in United's 3-1 loss to derby rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 on August 28.
"I know it won't come easy (game-time). I'm just working hard. I just came back from a knee injury that I sustained in one of the pre-season friendlies but I'm okay now. I even played in the MTN8," Alexander tells KickOff.com.
"It's up to the coach, I will just give my best. I know it's not going to be a walk in the park. I'm competing with a lot of quality players here. I have joined a big team in South Africa. One of the reasons I came here is to win something in my career."
SuperSport next face Chippa United in the league at Lucas Moripe Stadium on September 14.
