Stellenbosch FC are not under pressure: Barker

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Stellenbosch FC will take on Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership game scheduled for the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night.

The newly-promoted team coached by Steve Barker are still seeking their first win of the season, but will have been buoyed by their comeback from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Golden Arrows in Durban on the weekend.

It was their fourth draw of the season, and they find themselves 14th on the table. On the other hand Polokwane City have been having one of their best starts to the season and are currently 2nd on the log, but Barker feels that his team have enough fight in them to come away from the game with something.

Despite being win-less, Barker says he and his squad have the full backing of the club’s management.

Barker says he will also continue to give young players like Nkanyiso Zungu and Lelethu Skelem opportunities, and believes they are future stars of the game. Report by Rob Delport
