Dean Furman: SuperSport United will qualify for the MTN8
Posted: 26 January 2018 Time: 07:56
SuperSport United captain Dean Furman says the team will bounce back and secure a top-eight finish this season.
SuperSport were touted as title contenders in pre-season, but have only won once in 10 matches since losing the CAF Confederation Cup final to TP Mazembe in November last year.
Eric Tinkler's side are now 11th in the standings with 21 points from 17 games - five points above the drop zone and three behind eighth-placed Chippa United.
The Nedbank Cup and MTN8 holders next host relegation-threatened Premiership champions Bidvest Wits at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday (20h15).
“We are looking forward to the game on Saturday. It’s going to be a tough one but we are ready and hoping for a positive result,” Furman told his club's website.
“It’s been tough to the team but we will certainly bounce back and cement a place in the top-eight bracket.
“The players are looking good and we will continue pulling in the same direction to the last day of the season.”
Matsatsantsa will be minus suspended centre-back Morgan Gould on the weekend.
