Jomo Cosmos next in AmaTuks' sight

Posted on April 20, 2010

 Last season at the same stage AmaTuks walloped Kaizer Chiefs to make it to the last 16 and this season it was Vasco da Gama's turn. Both wins were in AmaTuks' backyard.

“The home ground advantage can work wonders to boost the players’ confidence and this time around it was surely build from the minute go,” said the AmaTuks team manager, Graham Oosthuis.

He added:  “It is a great score line but we still need to work on a few things as we now face another PSL team.”

“The game of soccer is like wave upon wave. We have passed the first phase of wave and we are now facing the second phase,” said asssistant coach Sly Mosala.

The jubilant head coach, Steve Barker said the win against  Vasco da Gama is only  the beginning of the race and that the team should now focus on regrouping for the clash against Jomo Cosmos.

“It was a great game though at some stage we absorbed pressure unnecessarily. They gained confidence but I’m glad that we dominated both halves of the game,” said the captain, Joseph Mthombeni, who stood in for the sick Obert Moyo.

Mthombeni played very well and was named man of the match.

 “If it was not of the coach and 11 players on the pitch it wouldn’t have been possible. A spoon full of thanks to my teammates,” said the smiling Jozi as he known all around.
