Davids welcomes turning point


Maritzburg have endured a frustrating run since qualifying for their maiden Nedbank Cup final last season, which they subsequently went on to lose to Free State Stars.

The Team of Choice finally registered their first win in their last 10 matches stretching across to last season, when they edged Bloemfontein Celtic 1-0 away from home on Sunday.

After suffering three consecutive defeats at the start of the new campaign, Davids has welcomed their three clean sheets in a row as well as their first victory, but admits there's still plenty to work on going forward.

"I am very pleased, it's a third clean sheet in a row and it's the starting point of great things to come from this team," Davids told his club's website.

"Although I am happy with three clean sheets, we still have to work on shifting our movements and closing the spaces.

"Building the communication in terms of our attack is definitely what we have to focus on and work on so that we can get better in our upfront movement."

The Pietermaritzburg-based outfit will next face KwaZulu-Natal rivals AmaZulu at the King Zwelithini Stadium next Tuesday, before hosting Cape Town City at the Harry Gwala Stadium three days later.
