Jonevret to use break to work on key areas

Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Kjell Jonevret believes the extended break before his side's next game will allow him time to work on the squad both defensively and in attack.

The Sea Robbers' next match is a Premiership clash against Free State Stars on April 1 at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney. This means Bucs have close to a two-and-a-half week period to get to work on the training ground.

As such, Jonevret is looking forward to the time they will have, telling the club's official website: "Two and half weeks is a long time but it will do us good, we are going to have a tough couple of weeks of training. 

"We have a chance now because there aren't any fixtures so we can solely focus on training in the first week, then give the players a couple of days over the weekend to visit their families but it's going to be even more hard work when they return.

"I think Jazzy Queen, Benson (Mhlongo) and myself have seen a lot more of the players now which makes it easier for us to work on all aspects of play.

"Our defensive organisation has improved a lot but it still needs work, we also have to work more on our set-pieces. I'm happy with our build up but we have to work harder on finishing so we can take advantage when we get to the final third."
