Cape Town Spurs coach Shaun Bartlett has set his sights on Venda Football Academy in the Motsepe Foundation Championship this weekend and mentioned that his side is looking ‘refreshed and energised’.
Unbeaten in four games, the Urban Warriors momentum was halted due to the short break in MFC football recently. Now though, with the Venda Football Academy lined up as the next fixture, Bartlett remained upbeat at the prospect of playing another home game.
The Spurs mentor said that while preparations have been going well, the break provided a window where some injured players made their way back to training.
“Finally we get to play another Motsepe Foundation Championship game this coming weekend against Venda Football Academy at home,” Bartlett said.
“We’ve had a couple of weeks break, obviously due to the fact that we sent five of our players to the national under 23 duty to qualify for the olympics and hence our games were postponed.
“Maybe not at the right time for us as a club because we put a nice run together of two wins and two draws, the break came at a time where we gathered momentum.
“We move on, we keep focusing on what we have to do this coming week, its another home game. It would be good for us to have back-to-back home wins in the bag
“Preparation has been going well, we played some practice matches to keep the boys going, the boys are looking refreshed, looking energised
“Also, it gave us a period of where some of our injured players came back to training.”
