Cape Town - University of Pretoria skipper Tebogo Monyai has backed his team to bounce back after an erratic opening to their season.

The University club suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Premiership returnees Golden Arrows, then demolished Polokwane City 3-0 before suffering a surprise 4-0 defeat to Chippa United.

After the FIFA international break, AmaTuks will face title contenders Wits on September 13.

"We are not panicking yet, but we know that we did not start well and need to adjust fast," Monyai told KickOff.

"We have had a good signing in striker Lennox Bacela and right-back Siyabonga Ngubane, who returned from Mpumalanga Black Aces and the three youngsters recently promoted to the senior team.

"The 4-0 loss to Chippa was a wake-up call and we hope the international break will give us enough time to work things out and gain some consistency.

"We have usually been defensively organised and since we got promoted to the top-flight league, we have not conceded so many goals in a single game.

"We lacked some basics in our last game and we need to work on that before we meet Wits in about two weeks' time."
