Cape Town - Thuso Phala's advice to SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund would be that they do not need reinforcements during the January transfer window.

The Tshwane outfit, three-time Premiership champions, have not set the league on fire this season by any stretch of the imagination, currently lying ninth, with 13 points from 11 games, having scored the second lowest number of goals in the league, only nine.

Matsatsantsa winger Phala, however, feels the club should be achieving more with a squad packed full of quality.

"Well to freshen up the team that is for the management to decide. On my side, I think the coach has assembled a strong squad, it's only about us just gelling well and playing well as a team. I think that's what we've been missing," Phala told Goal website.

"Come the January transfer window about the signings and stuff; that's up to the management and the coach to decide, but for me we have got a strong team and I think we will do well with this team."

Igesund's side have shown some improvement in recent weeks, and are unbeaten in their last four matches.

"Have we turned the cornet yet? There is an improvement," Phala said.

"We have gone four games in the league unbeaten so hopefully moving forward we will also improve our position on the log to fight for a place in the top eight.

"Hopefully this will give us a chance to fight our way up the log."
