Chippa United’s Diski team will be looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat against Bidvest Wits when they play Orlando Pirates at the Kanyamazane Stadium tomorrow (kickoff 1pm).
The young Chilli Boys have recorded only four points from the three games played so far.
They have one win, a draw and a loss.
Chippa development coach Glen Minnie said he had seen a huge improvement in his team from last year, looking at the matches they had played so far.
He said, however, there was still room for improvement.
“We are definitely planning to bounce back,”Minnie said.
“We lost to Wits and I do not like to go into a break when we have lost, because you are always sitting anxiously saying you need to correct that loss and bring the confidence back. ”
“A game like the Pirates one is motivation itself and the boys are really looking forward to it. I know we will be much more organised.”
The coach said in order to win against the Soweto giants his striking force needed to be sharpened as many scoring opportunities were going to waste.
He said the decision-making in front of the posts was not up to scratch.
“We create a lot of chances but we just need to put them away.”
“Even against Wits we had our chances to win the game, but the chances that we missed cost us. ”
“You can’t miss some balls when their goalkeeper is not even in the right position and kick the ball over the bar. “But we have been working really hard and have done some excises to correct that.”
