With just seven league games remaining before the 2013/2014 league comes to an end, AmaTuks will be looking to cement their stay in top flight football.
Placed 11th on the log table with 28 points from 23 matches, and having a poor start to the 2nd round; collecting no points in the first three matches, Coach Steve Barker has spoken out on the possibility of the team finishing in top 8 position come end of the season,
“We had a poor start to the start of the second half of the season. Once again the performances in our first three games were relatively good, but did not however produce any points.” He said
AmaTuks have since picked up momentum and have gone five games unbeaten, and registering their first win on the road when they beat Arrows 4-2 in Durban.
“The last 5 matches showed what the team is capable. The resilience, character and quality of play demonstrated by the players has been superb, this has laid a foundation for us to strive to get to the 40 point mark which will place us in a position to finish in the top 8.”
According to Coach Barker, there have not been challenges in the second round, except for the long breaks as the team has been knocked out of the Nedbank Cup.
