Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund revealed that back-to-back wins have restored the team's self-confidence after a horrid run.

Matsatsantsa beat Golden Arrows 3-1 at the weekend to advance to the Telkom Knockout semi-finals and they overcame Chippa United 2-0 in the Premiership on Wednesday.

The two recent victories on the trot was preceded by a disappointing run of four consecutive losses in the league.

With an extra spring in their step, Igesund will be hoping for more of the same against Free State Stars in Bethlehem on Sunday.

"You don't go to bed one night and the next morning you are a bad coach. We have had a terrible start to the season but we haven't been the only club," Igesund told The Sowetan.

"The players have all helped to take responsibility. They kept saying 'we'll get it right'. We are still trying to get it right but with each game we are getting better and better.

"But we knew exactly where the problems were and the players have worked hard to rectify that. We knew victories would come.

"It was the determination of the players; they want to be much further up the log. When the chips were down, the players stood up and that pleases me a lot. Things are now looking much better and more relaxed."
