Kerr not allowing Leopards to rest

Black Leopards head coach Dylan Kerr says his players have not been resting for the past week as he does not want his team to lose momentum.
 
With the Nedbank Cup semifinals taking place this weekend, the Limpopo side have not been in action for a while, with their next match on Wednesday against title-chasing Bidvest Wits.
 
"If you want to become somebody, you have to stay in the PSL," Kerr tells KickOff.com.
 
"Well every time we've had a break, we've come back and we've lost our momentum, we've lost our mojo, so we are not having a break. We played a friendly for those who didn't play Saturday against Polokwane United in Seshego [ABC Motsepe League]. They're good, they're actually good, we often play them, they give us really, really good games. It's good for us, it's good for our players.
 
"During this break we're just gonna get ourselves ready and focused for our next game as we always do. Every day we will train and everybody is up for selection. Against Wits I will pick the players I think deserve to play. No one thinks they are guaranteed to play and that's the beauty of this team, they are always fighting."
 
Kerr says Wits-bound Phathusedzo Nange is recovering well from his injury.
 
"He has been training. He won't be available for the next couple of days but he has been training. He just came back from a hamstring so we will see."
 
Despite getting a point against Kaizer Chiefs last weekend, Leopards are still 12th on the Absa Premiership table, only two points away from the relegation playoff places.
