SuperSport United coach Eric Tinkler has defended his indication that some of the club’s youngsters will get a run in their upcoming Nedbank Cup match against Bloemfontein Celtic this coming weekend.
Tinkler insists that playing the young boys in the match does not mean he is not taking the cup game seriously as he believes those youngsters are at the club because they are capable of delivering when given a chance.
“It does not mean that when going into the game we’re not serious. The players we brought into the club are the players who we believe have the potential of playing in the first team. That’s why the youngsters are here. The hard thing is giving them game time when we are under pressure”, explained Tinkler.
Matsatsantsa, who are the competition’s defending champions, will travel to the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium on Sunday to face the team they defeated 4-2 in league action last weekend. The match will kick off at 15h30.
