Head coach, Ernst Middendorp believes that Chippa United are in a good position to fight their way back inside the top eight bracket of the Absa Premiership log.
The Chilli Boys are currently 12th on the PSL log, having collected 25 points from 24 games so far this season. The team is still searching for the first win of the year in seven games under the Middendorp-led technical team.
“Mathematically, we are in a good position on the log table at the moment, but we’ll have to push more forward for the top eight brackets position by collecting points in our remaining league games.
“The focus is to collect at least full points in our away games or a draw but at home we need all three points on offer,” Middendorp told the club’s official website.
Chippa’s next league game is scheduled for April 15, against Moroka Swallows in Port Elizabeth. The team is aiming to use the three-week long international break to plan for positive results.
“Of course there is pressure at this stage but I believe in my players. We are going to fight together to stay in the top flight football next season,” explained Middendorp.
