Johnstone: We need to gain momentum

Paul Johnstone shared his thoughts on the previous game against Jomo Cosmos, and how important it is now for The Clever Boys to maintain momentum.

“We came from a very tough game and we managed to get a win from it, which is the most important thing. I know that Gavin said that Cosmos were very good on the day, and they fought well. We pretty much struggled, and we were very fortunate that we came away with a win. It is very important for our momentum – that we gained the 3 points and the team will carry that momentum into the next game on Saturday night against Free State Stars. With the stop start nature of our season, we had gone quite some time before the Cosmos game not having played. It is very important that we take the positives from Wednesday’s game and carry it into our match on Saturday.

The reality of the situation is that Bidvest Wits have not done very well against Free State Stars over the past couple of years. You can’t go into the game having that in the back of your mind. You have to go into the game preparing as a team, and preparing specifically for the opposition you are playing against. If you go into your game with the past results in the back of your mind, then you are already starting on a negative mind set.
