Bartlett: The work ethic was there

After a stalemate in the opening Motsepe Foundation Championship clash against Pretoria Callies, Coach Shaun Bartlett is eager to get over the first game jitters and explained that he was pleased with his side’s work ethic. 

Cape Town Spurs will now face Magesi at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Friday afternoon, a tie that was originally scheduled to be on home soil for Saturday, September 10.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Bartlett mentioned that he was happy with the Urban Warriors’ display against Pretoria Callies and singled out the team’s ‘work ethic’ as a positive. 

“Going into our second game against Magesi, which unfortunately we have to play away from home, it was meant to be a home game,” Bartlett said.

“We started the season reasonably well with a point away from home against Callies, it’s something to build on.

“Hopefully this time around, our players can get over the jitters of the first game of the season and we can really push on.

“We are hoping to go to Magesi and get the three points, I think it’s important for us to get that first win under the belt to get rid of the nerves a little bit for most of the players.

“Overall, I was quite happy with the performance against Pretoria Callies, we came back well and could have won it in the end but at the end of the day, the work ethic was there.”
