Cape Town - Maritzburg
United coach Steve Komphela will not panic just yet, despite his team fail to
collect maximum points in any of the last five Premiership matches.

The Team of Choice was in a promising position halfway
through the season and there were strong indications that the club would finish
the season among the top eight in the South African top flight.
However, Maritzburg United have since dropped to tenth in
the league standings, where they are three points behind SuperSport United, who
occupy the final MTN8 spot.
Komphela is not at all fazed by the current circumstances
"If you worry, what is going to help you? Worry is no
solution in any predicament," Komphela told the club’s website.
Komphela suggested that while the results were not
forthcoming in 2015, his team had produced a series of quality performances
during this barren spell, which he felt was a solid platform on which to build
for the remainder of the season.
"Of course it is a concern but what is important, are
you creating chances? Do you see some light at the end of the tunnel?
"Yes, we do, and by our standards, based on what we did
in the first 10 matches, we shouldn't [worry] - this is how it is - just deal
with it," said a calm and collected Komphela.
