Chippa United vs TS Galaxy: Goal Rush!
Lentjies relieved after avoiding the drop!
“It’s the first time in Chippa United’s history that a coach goes six games without tasting defeat.” Kurt Lentjies said.
“We haven’t conceded much goals either. We are very pleased to walk into the last game of the season with less pressure.
“It’s an achievement for the club. The past three seasons, we have been in the playoff or secured status on the last day, so it’s an improvement.
“It’s very important. For Chippa United to survive relegation, with the poorest home form I have ever seen.
“I’m more encouraged than disappointed in our home form because that is something we need to touch on for next season.
“Monday, we’ll sit and reflect on the season, what we have achieved and what we want to achieve in the next season.
Obviously, deciding who Chippa United want to keep, who you want to bring in. You don’t want to count your chickens before they hatch.”
