Chippa United midfielder William Twala reckons that the Chilli Boyz have recovered from their away trip to Polokwane and Venda where they came back with a loss and a win.

The Chilli Boyz, who face Maritzburg United in an Absa Premiership encounter at Mdantsane’s Sisa Dukashe Stadium in East London on Saturday evening, lost 2-0 to Polokwane City last Saturday and beat Black Leopards 2-1 on Wednesday.

Twala is confident that United will emerge victorious on Saturday.

Twala has appealed to football followers in and around East London to come in numbers and support the team in their effort to go up the Absa Premiership standings.

Currently, the Eastern Cape side is 10th on the standings with 20 points from 17 matches.

Meanwhile, Chippa’s midfielder Boikanyo Komane says their target is to win all their three matches after the festive season. However, that didn’t happen as the Chilli Boyz lost to Polokwane before they beat Leopards.

On the other hand, Komane has commended United’s coach Norman Mapeza for the good job he has done so far. Mapeza has led United to five wins, a draw and a loss in their last seven matches. – Report by Monwabisi Jimlongo
