Stellies extended their winless run to six matches across all competitions when they suffered a 3-2 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in a Nedbank Cup last 32 match last week.
It was also Stellenbosh’s second defeat in a row, having lost 2-1 to AmaZulu FC in a league game, and they are placed 12th on the DStv Premiership standings – three points behind eighth-placed Kaizer Chiefs.
Steve Barker, the Stellenbosch head coach, was pleased with how his charges performed against Sundowns and he feels that they need to take their performance forward and build from it.

“I thought we coped well, they didn’t look like they were really going to create anything and obviously they are able to bring in a lot of firepower and we sort of looked to maintain our composure, compactness and hopefully create a chance here or there,” Barker said.
“And they got the winner, which turned out to be, again we had a final chance to make it 3-3. But overall, we came up against a really good team but I thought we did some really nice things, we need to take this forward and build from it.”
Meanwhile, Arrows were eliminated from the Nedbank Cup by AmaZulu after losing 5-4 on penalties following a 1-1 draw last weekend. Prior to the clash, they had won two successive matches in the league.
Abafana Bes’thende are placed fifth on the league standings – three points behind joint second-placed SuperSport United, Swallows FC and Orlando Pirates.
