Momentum plays an important role in any football teams strategy and although Bidvest Wits have had some down time, goalkeeper Darren Keet says that “It’s not necessarily a bad thing because the last game we participated in was the MTN8 final and we won. The down time has given us an opportunity to get our feet grounded and regroup.”
Having won the MTN8 has definitely boosted the Braamfontein outfits morale. “Winning the MTN8 definitely shows what we are capable of as a team, as a squad and as a club. It is motivation for the younger players and the youth because everyone wants to be there and win things.”
No matter the success of Bidvest Wits, Ea Lla Koto always pose a tough challenge and Darren let us know how the team keeps the negativity of the media out in preparation for tomorrow match. “Cup games are always different and there are no special preparations that have taken place before tomorrow’s match. We just have to be better than the previous seasons and make sure we get the win.”
Bidvest Wits take on Free State Stars tomorrow afternoon at Goble Park in the first round of the Telkom Knockout Challenge. Kickoff is set for 15h00, you can follow us on Twitter @BidvestWits for live match tweets.
