SuperSport United defender Clayton Daniels stresses importance of team work

SuperSport United defender Clayton Daniels believes they can turn things around if they continue working as a team.
It's been a difficult league season for the club, with just five victories in a campaign that sees them sitting at the lower end of the table.
Currently in 14th place, Matsatsantsa have registered just one victory this year and coach Eric Tinkler will know that his job will be on the line if he does not revive their fortunes. SuperSport are not the type of club to fire a coach while the season is still on, but they have shown previously with Cavin Johnson and Gordon Igesund that they are not afraid to wield the axe on an underperforming coach.
They take on Bloemfontein Celtic at Lucas Moripe Stadium tomorrow, desperate to register a victory.
"Well we need to soldier on," Daniels says.
"It's tough times but we believe we can get out of this together as a team. There are 11 games to be played and we gonna fight for every point."
The Bafana Bafana international admits that having a good run in the CAF Confederation Cup last year did have an effect on the team's performances, particularly the younger players in the side.
"Well I think it took a toll on the players, but I don't think it's us experienced players that got affected. I think mostly it's the young players that have never been in this situation, playing high competitive football week in and week out in different competitions.
"So we as experienced players, we need to help the younger ones to manage their bodies properly because we know what it takes. To rest is part of training.
"Our fans have been good, they are very supportive. They know we've been good to them and they are with us all the way. They must keep supporting us in good times and in bad times.
"But we know we will turn the corner. Our coach believes there's a light at the end of the tunnel."
