Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Eric Tinkler says they need to be wary of complacency after winning the MTN8 title on Saturday.
Matsatsantsa beat Cape Town City 4-2 on penalties after a grueling
120 minutes of football in the final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
After Sibusiso Masina's first-half goal, the Tshwane giants had to
come from behind with an 85th-minute equaliser via forward Thabo
Mnyamane, who suffered a groin injury in the process.
This left Tinkler's side with a man down for the entire extra-time period, having already made all three of their substitutions.
"Being the type of the person I am‚ I want more," Tinkler said after
the game. "We have another massive game coming up at the weekend and I
want us to win it so that we can get to another final.
"Winning trophies must become an addiction and a drug for us. That's where you measure yourself against the best."
Bafana Bafana keeper Ronwen Williams proved to be the difference on
the big occasion to bring Tinkler his first silverware with the club in
his debut campaign.
And Tinkler lauded the academy graduate for his efforts in saving two
spot-kicks, but also mentioned his concern of the fitness of some of
his starting XI.
"We had a lot of faith in our goalkeeper Ronwen and we had practiced
taking penalties during the week. Ronwen was brilliant in saving those
penalties," he said.
"We'll also have to assess all the players who had bruises and
injuries in this final. It does worry me because we don't have a big
squad. But it's very difficult to sit down and evaluate the situation
