Pietermaritzburg - With five games left
before the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season reaches its climax, relegation
contenders Maritzburg United skipper Kurt Lentjies is confident that the
KwaZulu Natal based outfit will survive the battle and reclaim their top flight
status next season.
The Team of Choice survival hopes were
boosted after securing a crucial point against archrivals Golden Arrows at the
Princess Magogo stadium on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old forward was on target for
United while Arrows found the net courtesy of Nkanyiso Cele from the penalty spot.
Lentjies said United will be all out to get
as many points as possible in the remaining games, regardless of where they
“Either we are playing at home or away from
home, we have to get all the three points.” Stressed Lentjies
“We need to get the points in the last five
games and we played away on Wednesday although it was still in KZN.
“And we got a crucial point against Arrows
and it was so good for the team.
“What can we do? We just have to fight like
I said in the last five games.
“We are not going down without a fight and
we still believe as a team that we can still survive this battle.”
The Team of Choice will have to do all in
their next league assignment against the rejuvenated Free State Stars away from
home on Tuesday next week.
