Stellenbosch FC coach stated that before his team stepped into action in the Premier Soccer League, the goal for the season was to reach 32 points. They needed it desperately in order to avoid relegation as they already passed 30 matches. Steve Baker recalls the time when his team was written off by the experts who expected that they will finish in the very last place in the psl results fixtures. They were also relegated from the top form at the end of the season.
Stellenbosch FC won 1-0 over SuperSport
If we look at the current situation, we can see Stellies back on track to get those 32 points. They even got beyond that, with the victory over SuperSport United 1-0 at the Cape Town Stadium occurring on Friday. They took their tally to 27 with eight matches left to play.
For the victory, Stellies have to thank their new recruit Nathan Sinkala. This was the Zambian’s second appearance for the club and he broke the deadlock in the 60th minute. He made a header that would even make Christiano Ronaldo proud. He managed to time the leap perfectly, meeting the striker Iqraam Rayners in the corner.
“We are definitely on track to reach our points goal. This victory was our fourth in five appearances and the target we have set feels within the reach. The boys deserved to feel proud and I am very proud of them too. It is a pleasure to coach a group of players who gave in everything since day one.” – Steve Barker added.
“They were rewarded for their efforts. However, there is still some distance to cover before we can relax and put our feet up.” Barker also commented on Sinkala; “He is a quality player and shown that on the international level as well. With the experience he brings to the table we can do wonders. I think that we were spot-on with our signings during the last month’s transfer window. We brought in four players and we can already feel a big difference.” Prepare for the next fixture with betway betting app!
