“It’s going to be a difficult game against Arrows considering the form they are in," says Truter.

Brandon Truter knows that his Sekhukhune United charges will have to be at their best when they take on an in-form Golden Arrows outfit at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Thursday.

Arrows are unbeaten in their last four DStv Premiership matches, winning three and drawing one in the process.

Truter, however, is aiming for maximum points against Arrows, especially with the club playing at home.

“It’s going to be a difficult game against Arrows considering the form they are in. Coming into this game, they have been on a good run, unbeaten picking up points away from home as well. We are mindful and we want to pick up points, especially at home,” said the Sekhukhune coach.

“Also, the amount of travelling that the Caf game took out of us it will be an interesting game. It will challenge us mentally, physically as well. But I’m sure the boys are up for it, only from these things fighters will grow. So, it will take character again on Thursday and I’m very positive that we will get the results at home.”

Sekhukhune will head into this clash with the side battling with consistency.

Babina Noko have three victories, one draw and three losses in their last seven league matches, which puts them in position nine on the log with 10 points.

What’s positive for them going into this match is that they were able to saunter into the group stages of the Caf Confederation Cup after edging St Lupopo 4-2 on aggregate.
