CT Spurs eager to avoid the chop


Cape Town Spurs went from fighting to gain promotion to the DStv Premiership last season, falling in the playoffs to battling in the relegation zone in the current GladAfrica Championship campaign in 14th place with four matches remaining.

The Cape side will be eyeing a return to winning ways in the second-tier league when they tackle high-flying Royal AM at Parow Park on Tuesday (15:00).

In their most recent game, CT Spurs lost 1-0 to Polokwane City in Dylan Deane’s first game in charge and they are just two points ahead of Steenberg and the relegation zone.

“We understand that points are crucial at any given time but we want to focus on our performance and objectives for our remaining matches, that will ensure that everyone remains focused,” said CT Spurs head coach Deane.

The reverse fixture at Chatsworth Stadium earlier this season ended in a 0-0 draw.

In contrast, Royal AM head into the top-v-bottom encounter well aware that a win would move them top of the table before Richards Bay’s visit to third-placed TS Sporting on Wednesday.

“Like them chasing promotion, we want to improve our position on the table, we will approach tomorrow’s [Tuesday] game with plenty of desire and commitment to ensure we compete toe-to-toe in every match,” added Deane.

“The players were outstanding [against Polokwane] in their application, they understood the importance of maintaining structure and concentrating on their role responsibilities, we just needed to complete actions created in the final third.”
