Stellenbosch FC made it three wins on the trot at Cape Town stadium in the Absa Premiership beating Supersport United FC 1-0 last Friday 14 February.

Nathan Sinkala made his first start in the league for Stellenbosch FC and scored his first league goal out-rising the Supersport defence in the 60th minute. Sinkala rattled the back of the net putting his side in the lead after an Iqraam Rayners corner kick found the head of the Zambian International.

“It was a good feeling to be out there again on the pitch, first league game and a first league goal, I couldn’t ask for more. I pray to God that I can continue with this form,” said Sinkala.

It was yet another clean sheet for Lee Langeveldt who holds a pristine record at Cape Town Stadium since the beginning of the year not conceding any goals.

After the match Langeveldt said: “I think we all have a common goal and that is for the team to succeed. We all want to do well and win. All I think about is the more we win, the better the opportunities for us as a club, supporters, our families and the communities in Stellenbosch.”

The Winelands outfit have claimed five wins out of their last eight games, placing them in 9th position on the log with 27 points. The history books indicate that on average, 30 points or more should guarantee safety in South Africa’s top-flight league.

Head Coach of Stellenbosch FC, Steven Barker said, “Most journalists pegged us to go down, or to be fighting in and around that relegation zone. When I was asked what our targets were, I said 33 points. The quicker we get to 33 points the quicker we’ll be able to enjoy our football and play with more ease. At the moment we have to be at our very best, every single game, we have to play to our full potential, so the pressure is on.”

“Credit must go to everyone, the players, management, the technical and support staff. This must be the best and most hardworking technical and support staff I’ve ever worked with. We trusted in our processes, we trust and believe in what we’re doing and we’re slowly getting there. We’ve just got to keep the commitment, not get ahead of ourselves and keep working hard.”
