although he fluffed his lines when he allowed Victor Letsoalo's strike
to go into the back of the net in the 77th minute.
However, Mpontshane has been assured he will start the club's next
game against Chippa United in the Premiership on Saturday at Orlando
"I have not been rotating the keepers,
Brighton (Mhlongo) is not well enough to come in now," Jonevret told reporters.
been great at training and our keeper coach (Rowen) Fernandez says that
he is our best goalie at the moment.
"Mpontshane will be in goals on Saturday. I'm usually a positive guy
but today has changed that. I'm not going to criticise but we do need
some work in certain positions.
"Chippa is a tough team and it's going to be a tough game, they are better than Baroka but I'm sure we will do well there."
Kick-off on Saturday is at 20:15.
