Elizabeth - Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane urged his side to string together a stretch of positive results on the road after their win over Polokwane City.
Boys enjoyed their 2-1 triumph over Rise and Shine in an Absa Premiership clash
played at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium thanks to goals from Lerato Manzini and Aristide
Sikhakhane said their win over City will be a confident booster for his charges ahead of their Telkom Knock-Out opener against Mamelodi Sundowns this coming weekend.
“I think it
was a good result for us and it was what we needed most on the day," said
“And I believe
that it’s going to help us gain confidence heading to the upcoming games. But we have
to stop the mentality of winning home games only, we must also do well playing
away from home.
Polokwane City are very comfortable on the ball, so that’s why we used
Thamsanqa (Sangweni) in the middle just to calm things down.
“And we also
knew that we’ll win the match, we were confident but I didn’t know what the
score line would be.
Polokwane City gave us a good run despite being a man down. But credit
must also go to my boys, they did exceptionally well and I’m proud of them.
A win for
the Port Elizabeth based side moved them to the 9th spot on the log
while City remained 12th.
Boys will switch their focus to the Ziwa Mo competition as they will face 'Downs at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, October 3.
