“That’s why we always talk about having depth in your squad. But you’ve also got to remember we can’t be making seven or eight changes. I doubt there is a team in the world that does it. If you watch the Real Madrid and Barcelonas of this world, players play Wednesday, Saturday and Wednesday,” Tinkler told the PSL website.

“What becomes important is how we rest the players in between and how we assess them. We need to make certain changes to certain players we believe need that rest, hence the fact that I have rested Morgan (Gould) and Yeye (Reneilwe Letsholonyane) in the past. That’s the approach we will make going into the Chippa game.”

United will square off with Chippa United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight.
