Komphela negotiates patchy PSL


Ea Lla Koto, who are eighth in the standings, have played five Premier Soccer League games and one MTN8 encounter since their season started on August 3.

Komphela's men lost their opening two games heavily, won their third, drew the next two before defeating Golden Arrows 1-0 in their most recent assignment last week.

The Bethlehem-based outfit's next competitive test is against joint-leaders AmaZulu in a Telkom Knockout last-16 tie at Goble Park on October 5.

"If one looks at our first league match and going into the second match one can clearly see the sluggishness in the team. It only got better in the third and fourth match," Komphela told his club's official website.

"Then one asks how you keep the momentum going. We will try and see how we intervene and come up with a solution."

The former Bafana Bafana captain added: "No Player wants to train and not play. But as always we will try and come back with the same level and winning ways."

Stars will contest a one-day friendly tournament with Maritzburg United, Arrows and Maritzburg City at Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday.
