Cape Town - SuperSport United central defender Thabo September is confident the team will bounce back from their disappointing performance against rock-bottom AmaZulu.

Matsatsantsa enjoyed a decent run at the turn of the New Year, taking seven points from a possible nine, including the scalp of leaders Kaizer Chiefs, prior to this past weekend's round of fixtures.

However, Gordon Igesund saw his side's undefeated start to 2015 go up in smoke as they slumped to a 5-2 defeat to Usuthu, who had managed just one win before seeing off United.

"There is consistency; if you look, we have drawn against Free State Stars, broke the unbeaten run of leaders Kaizer Chiefs, (beat) Mpumalanga Black Aces away and lost to AmaZulu; so I think that's not a bad record," said the centre-back,” said September to Football411.

"Losing against AmaZulu is a wake up call for us. If you lose your focus in the game you get your lesson, so we have learned the hard way and now we are moving on."

SuperSport will next come up against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday, and September is convinced his side can return to the winning trail.

"We always like to focus on ourselves and believe that we are the best when it comes to attacking force as a team, we just need to work on some things when it comes to losing the ball and defending as a team," stated 32 year old former club captain.

"At any given time we know we can score goals as we have scored in every game we've played this year and we can score against any team in the league; we also don't want to give teams chances against us."
