‘We are capable of pulling off a surprise’

Cape Town Spurs coach Shaun Bartlett has spoken confidently of his side’s chances heading into their next Motsepe Foundation Championship match, as the Urban Warriors travel to Durban this weekend.

Uthongathi will host the Urban Warriors at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with the game scheduled for a 3pm kick-off.

Spurs were 2-0 winners in the first meeting between the two sides, which took place on January 25,  as a brace by Boitumelo Radiopane ensured the club a vital three points at the Athlone Stadium.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Bartlett mentioned that the fixture will bring its own difficulties and that the Urban Warriors will travel to Durban with confidence. 

“Following our last 32 Nedbank Cup win against Baroka last Friday, it’s back to our bread and butter which is the league,”  Bartlett said.

“With Uthongathi away, a team that we beat at home but this time we know it will be more difficult for us, playing in Durban.

“It’s their home ground, their conditions so we’ve got to prepare and make sure we go there full of confidence. 

“Our team has been doing really well for the last five games Since the Casric loss. We’ve really rallied together and put a couple of good performances and wins under our belt.

“I think we can go to Durban knowing that when we do the right things, we can get a result.

“We expect a tough game but we also know that we are well capable of pulling off possibly a surprise result, once we get the best out of ourselves as individuals and as a team.”
