Min­nie fires up his ‘Boys’

Daily Dispatch - - Sport - By YONELA MOFU

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.
