We kick off the season this coming Sunday with a Derby game against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg. The game gets underway at 15h00 and is sure to deliver all that the Derby games do.
After drawing both games in the last season, both teams will be wanting to claim the bragging rights of a Derby win.
Coach Clinton Larsen is expecting a physical battle on Sunday and told IOL “We are ready for the start of the new season. We won’t read too much into our victory against Maritzburg United in the KZN Premier’s Cup.”
“We didn’t want to show any hand in terms of the team that we will use when we meet on Sunday and they also did the same. We want to get off to a flying start. We are targeting a victory and I’m sure Maritzburg United want to achieve the same objective.”
The coach and his charges are looking at getting off to a strong start to the season, and we are happy with the match fitness of the players after a positive pre-season.
We would like to encourage all our supporters to get to Harry Gwala Stadium and get behind the team in the season opener.
The live play-by-play will be availbale for you to follow on both our Twitter and Facebook handles, and the game will also be televised live on SuperSport 4.
