Cape Town - Maritzburg United midfielder Miguel Timm believes the recent international break came at a good time the team as look to get on track after a difficult start to the season.

The Team of Choice are still winless in the Absa Premiership and have only collected two points from their first four games this campaign.

Coach Eric Tinkler has had time to fine-tune his charges as their last competitive encounter was on August 28 when they lost 1-0 to Black Leopards.

Timm said in quotes on the Maritzburg United website: "I think the FIFA break came at a good time for us.

"We had enough time to figure out what our issues were and had some time to work on those things as a team.

"We have been playing a good brand of football, it's just that the problem has been converting those chances we create.

"But I believe we have been doing well at training to rectify that."

Maritzburg are preparing for their clash against defending league champions Mamelodi Sundowns that will take place in Tshwane on Saturday.

Even though it looks a daunting task, Timm is hoping they can come back home with all three points.

"We will go there hoping to come back with maximum points," Timm added.

"We know it won't be easy, but we also know that it is possible and we cannot wait to get back playing again after the break."

Kick-off is at 18:00.
