According to KickOff, the Bucs caretaker coach reveals that he sees improvement in the way Jomo has been playing.

“He’s come on in leaps and bounds and whenever he’s come in for us he has done exceptionally well,” says Tinkler.

“I think he will get stronger and better. He also brings a certain amount of confidence to the team because of his ability to keep the ball and how he passes the ball.

Tinkler confessed that Rakhale brings positive play into their game which instils faith amongst the other players.

“He is very direct if you like and I know sometimes he does spend a lot of time on the ball, but he looks to get forward and he looks to be positive. You will definitely see Jomo a lot more.”

Following their 1-1 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns, Pirates will look to return to winning ways in the Absa Premiership when they host Ajax Cape Town at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, December 13.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
