CAPE TOWN – Coach Steve Barker isn’t losing sleep over Stellenbosch FC’s failure to win a game yet in the Premiership, believing a positive result is just around the corner for the league rookies.
“We’ve been competitive in the four games we’ve played and could well have won a game or two had luck gone our way,” he said.
“We showed against title contending sides Cape Town City and Wits last time out that we are up to scratch defensively and a threat going forward. While we haven’t had one of our players score a goal, we got one from an own goal from Wits through pressure.
They only managed to beat us in the last couple of minutes, we were 1-1 and it was a pity we conceded when we did to deny us what would have been a third draw to go with the 1-0 loss to City.”
Stellies, who are one from bottom of the log in 15th place on two points, on Sunday visit 11th-placed Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium (3pm kick-off).
