SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has explained why it has been difficult for him to plan for the upcoming Absa Premiership clash against Kaizer Chiefs.
Matsatsantsa host Amakhosi at Mbombela Stadium on Friday night (20h00), looking to continue with their fine form of late. They’ve won five of their last six matches, a run which has put them in the race for the title. A victory over the Soweto giants tomorrow night would put them within two points of Tshwane rivals and leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
“We are playing against a good team. They’ve done well in the past two games against Highlands and Maritzburg. They have collected points and they are high on confidence. They are a very difficult team to prepare against because they always change the way they play, but what’s important is for us to try focus on our ourselves. We are playing at home, so we should try impose our game on them,” Tembo said.
Tembo is playing it safe in the title race, saying they should just collect as many points as possible.
”It’s very tight, compared to last season. Last season, with about eight games to go, we knew who the contenders were – it was Pirates and Sundowns. It’s very difficult, that you cannot look beyond the next game. We to try give good performances and collect as many points as we can. When it’s about four games to go, we’ll start seeing a [clearer] picture.”
