Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United defender, Bradley Carnell, believes Michael Boxall proved that he is a quality player after scoring that solitary goal in Supersport United’s 1-0 over Orlando Pirates, after a shaky start to life at the Tshwane-based team.

Boxall was thrown right in the deep-end when he first arrived in South Africa, playing a friendly game against Crystal Palace of England within 48 hours.

Boxall, a natural right back, also played in the heart of the defence, alongside Bongani Khumalo, who at the time was yet to sign for the club, but was training with them.

“I think he has been showing the team and fans his talent with the ball, after a shaking start to life in the pre-season Cape Town Cup,” Carnell told Sport24.

“There were worries during the pre-season matches where he looked very shaky, but he proved an important player with an impressive performance against Orlando Pirates during the midweek fixture.

“Not only did he get himself in the score sheet, he was a threat in set pieces the whole match and his defense skills have also improved a lot.”

Carnell also said he feels overall Supersport have done very well in the transfer market after recently signing Dean Furman, and the victory over Pirates was an early indication that the team will be vying for honours in the new season.

SuperSport played to a 1-1 draw against Mpumalanga Black Aces this past Saturday, August 22 at the Mbombela Stadium.
