Stellenbosch have drawn three and lost three in their six games in the top flight since being promoted at the start of the season.
Stellenbosch missed out their first win last Saturday when they conceded a stoppage time equaliser against Black Leopards, but Barker says they can take confidence from that game.
Barker feels that these games are an opportunity for his team, and he feels that they could come away with a win from one of them.
The former Tuks and AmaZulu FC boss says it has been a difficult start to the season, but he feels that his team is improving every week and they will recover.
Barker says it can be tough on the players mentally, but this is when the leadership comes to the fore to keep the squad in a positive frame of mind. – Report by Rob Delport
