Masutha confident of maximum points against Chippa


Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila will be looking to pick up where they left off against Baroka, when they take on Chippa United in the only DStv Premiership match on Sunday.

TTM registered their first-ever win in the elite league with the 1-0 victory over their Limpopo neighbours at home last weekend.

The win took them to the 10th position on the league standings with five points from four matches.

Head coach Joel Masutha admits that they are facing a tough Chippa side, but remains confident of collecting maximum pints at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

“We are going there to fight for three points and I believe we have got an equal chance of getting them,” Masutha tells FARPost.

“They are a very difficult team to play against, especially when they are playing at home. They have young boys who run a lot, a coach who is very good in planning for the opponents, so it’s going to be a tough match but I believe we will come back with positive results,” he said.

With four matches remaining before the Christmas recess, Masutha insists their target is to maintain their top 10 position until the end of the year.

“For now we just feel that when we close on the 19th (of December) if we can be inside the top 10 then it will be a good thing,” said the former Chippa United head coach.

Chippa recorded their second defeat in their last three league matches when they succumbed to a 2-0 loss to Stellenbosch last weekend.

The Chilli Boys are 13th on the log with four points from four matches having registered one win this season against Maritzburg United.

The match will start at 15:30.
