Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela wary of SuperSport United threat in Telkom Knockout quarterfinals


In the first few weeks of the season SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo was amongst the coaches who might not have lasted that long.

But following success in the first domestic trophy of the season, Kaitano Tembo seems to have found that winning feeling in the team and that has changed their outlook for the season completely.

This Saturday his side hosts Golden Arrows in the quarterfinals of the second domestic competition up for grabs, the Telkom Knockout.

Arrows coach Steve Komphela, speaking after their victory over Polokwane City last Saturday, said travelling to Tshwane will be a difficult task and gave his assessment of their opponents.

"SuperSport United are playing more as a unit, they seem to be understanding their coach now and their work ethic is on another level," Komphela said.

"Their 4-3-3 formation is clear. When you play against them you must be ready to face a very solid team. Our encounter might be decided on small details."
