Cape Town Spurs coach Shaun Bartlett deems the club’s Nedbank clash against Baroka as an important fixture, despite it being a breather from the Motsepe Foundation Championship.
The Urban Warriors are among the most in-form teams in the Motsepe Foundation Championship at the moment and currently occupy third spot on the table.
After qualifying for the Nedbank Cup, Spurs were drawn against fellow league side Baroka, a clash Bartlett and company look forward to as they seek to continue their positive momentum, particularly on home soil.
“This week, it’s a breather from the league, going into the Nedbank Cup,” Bartlett mentioned.
“Even though we are playing a fellow league team (Motsepe Foundation Championship) in Baroka, we are going to take it very seriously.
“The more games we can play the better it will be for the team and for the club as far as carrying momentum are concerned.
“We will go into the game with the view of getting into the last 16 and put a team out on Friday that will represent the club and make sure we can get that result.
“We should go into the game knowing that we’ve got a very good home record thus far this season and we got to make sure that we keep that going, in making it difficult for any opponent to come to Athlone Stadium to get a result.”
