Mini Chilli Boys set to turn up heat
THE Chippa United reserve side will be out to bounce back from their disappointing 3-1 loss to Ajax Cape Town in the Multi Choice Diski Challenge opener when they host SuperSport United at the Wolfson Stadium tomorrow at noon.
More importantly, the mini Chilli Boys will be out to bag their first win of the season.
Team coach Glen Minnie said they had doubled their workload this week and were ready to redeem themselves.
“The good thing is that we are playing at home,” he said.
“We also received very good support in terms of people coming out to watch us last weekend, which is important.
“This week, we have doubled our efforts and I have also emphasised to the players the importance of taking your chances.
“At the end of the day if you see the score and it says 3-1, people will not realise that we had our chances to close the gap.”
Minnie said that during the Ajax game his players had lacked urgency and hunger out in the middle.
“When you are a midfielder you must come out at the end of the game dirty, you must realise you were at war the whole game.
“We also worked on being able to play out of confined spaces because we know SuperSport always press hard.
“The bottom line is that we are ready for Saturday’s game and we want to redeem ourselves.”
The visitors will also be hoping to record their first win after playing to a goalless draw against Platinum Stars last weekend.
