Cape Town - Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr insist his side
must stay grounded and hungry despite picking up two wins in a row in the Absa Premiership.
Leopards recorded a 2-1 win over Baroka on Sunday but also
defeated AmaZulu in their final match of 2018 in December.

height and I hurt."
12th placed Lidoda Duvha are back in action on Saturday when
they host SuperSport United at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Kick-off is from 15:30.
