Mini Chilli Boys set to turn up heat

The Herald (South Africa) - - CLUB SPORT - Vuyokazi Nkan­jeni

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.
