Matsatsantsa have won all three games - two in the
Premiership and one in the Telkom Knockout - since the former Bafana Bafana
boss took charge last month.
"The way we started the year put us on the back
foot," he told Football411.
"Yes we've done well in the past few games, but there's a lot of demanding
work ahead to get out of the area we're in.
"Installing confidence in the players, installing the
type of football we want to play and make sure the players go out there and
perform...if we can do that, who knows what will happen between now and the end
of the year."
However, the four-time league winning coach has admitted
that Kaizer Chiefs' form is going to make it difficult to catch the runaway
league leaders, who they trail by 12 points.
Despite this he still retains hope of winning the league.
United are presently in ninth position, up five places from where they were
when the new boss arrived to replace Cavin Johnson.
"We have to try and get to within four or five points
off the top in the next few months, which is going to be tough," Igesund
"But that's not our worry. What is most important at
this stage is just to continue improving."
