Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler has underlined the importance of approaching Friday night’s Absa Premiership showdown against Bloemfontein Celtic in the right frame of mind.

Coach Eric will be looking for his men to head into the game with a positive approach, to show character and fight, to maintain their focus in defence and to pounce on any chances up front, in what is United’s third last home match of the season (8pm kick off at the Harry Gwala Stadium).

“It’s about closing the gap between us and the sides directly above us,” said the Maritzburg tactician. ”We need to collect the three points, anything less than that especially at home wouldn’t suffice. The players know the importance of getting the (three points), because then it puts the pressure on the teams above us who play on Saturday and Sunday.”
