Minnie fires up his ‘Boys’
CHIPPA United reserve team coach Glen Minnie said his side need to up their tempo when they take on Kaizer Chiefs at the Dobsonville Stadium next week Saturday.
The Chilli Boys second team showed great resilience to come back from being 2-0 down at the half-time break to steal the game from Bidvest Wits in stoppage with a late goal from Asivile Tom to win the match 3-2.
“The game against Bidvest Wits was not an easy one for us,” said Minnie.
“We started off really slowly and I am disappointed to say that this has become a trend for the boys recently.
“They need to change their mind-set and show a bit of urgency when they play.
“They need to up their tempo from the moment the referee blows the whistle.”
Despite using most of the players from the development side due to a friendly match that took place in Mthatha over the weekend, Minnie’s boys were able secure three points in what was a tough encounter for them.
Their 18-year-old goalkeeper Chelsea Jacobs put up a brave performance on his debut in the MDC last weekend.
Xolani Maholo from New Brighton has been promoted to the first team after a brilliant 2015-16 season.
Chippa United are 11th on the MDC log with eight points after seven games and will be pulling out all the stops against the Amakhosi reserves.
