We will get things right, says AmaTuks skipper Tebogo Monyai
University of Pretoria are flirting with the relegation zone and they are yet to win a match since the start of the Year 2014, but club captain and veteran defender Tebogo Monyai says his side will turn the tables around soon.
AmaTuks are yet to win this year after losing three consecutive matches since the start of the second-round of the season, and that poor run has left them hovering near the danger zone in the 11th position on the log with 17 points from 18 matches, and just four points off the relegation zone.
Club captain, Tebogo Monyai, says he is aware that his side are not having the best of time at the moment, but his teammates are working hard until to get things right. “We did not start the year in a manner that we had hoped to,” he said in his Captain Corner Column in the club official website.
“This is not good for us going to final half of the season. Our preparation for the second round was no different to the previous year. Yes, we are sitting 11th position on the log table, and yet to score away from home. We score goals at home but we fail to do so away, but we need to keep pushing and not give up.
The 34-year old defender added, “We have to work harder and give it our best in the coming matches, not be complacent and play until the end, be it home of away from home. With 12 games remaining, we need to keep fighting until we get it right.
AmaTuks was a surprising package last season, finishing in the top-half of the table in their debutant season in the top flight football. They next face top-five placed Platinum Stars at the Tuks Stadium this coming Sunday, kickoff at 15:30 CAT.
