Cape Town Spurs defender Kegan Johannes is hopeful that his side will bounce back in the second half of the GladAfrica Championship, despite their poor start to the season.
Johannes, 19, is a product of the Urban Warriors and has amassed 50 professional appearances for the Cape Town-based outfit.
“Having already played so many games does count in my favour, I am a junior with some experience. I can help the other juniors as well and share things I’ve experienced,” Johannes told the club’s official site.
“Obviously the season has been very difficult. Playing wise I think the work ethic is definitely there, just a lack of goals and a lack of concentration in certain departments.
“However, I think going forward we just need to focus on the job at hand. We will take it from there and I’m confident wins will come.”
Spurs are now level on points with Bizana Pondo Chiefs at the bottom of the GladAfrica Championship log standings with 14 points, goal difference separates the two teams.
The youngster insists he has a lot to learn as an individual and went on to say that it’s a ‘privilege’ for him to be playing alongside many of his peers.
“It’s definitely a privilege [playing in the first team with fellow academy graduates] because they know the philosophy,” he said.
“I understand the way they play and they know what is expected from them, and you know what they are going to do before they do it, considering that when coming through the ranks you play the same system and all of that so it’s very much a privilege for me as a junior as well.”
Ikamva will take on JDR Stars on Wednesday, 17 March at the Cape Town Stadium with the kick-off set for 15:30 in the afternoon.
