Chippa back at training for Pirates



Chippa United returned to training on Monday after being given the week off, seeking to shrug off the disappointment of losing Friday’s derby to Ajax Cape Town, coach Farouk Abrahams said.

The coach said key to training this week was to lift his players spirits after their defeat in the Cape derby last Friday, where a goalkeeping blunder saw a 2-1 lead turn into a 2-3 defeat.

“It’s going to be about the mindset of the players. We’ve had time to recover and my job is to make sure the players don’t sink too low after the loss.

“It’s important to get through good training drills and work hard on preparing for our next game.”

Chippa have the weekend off before hosting champions Orlando Pirates on December 5.

Abrahams described the up coming against Orlando Pirates as “big” for the club, who have dropped back to just above the relegation ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns on goal difference.

“I don’t believe my side have become a palookas overnight just because of one mistakes. I must stick with the guys and prepare them best for the challenge of Pirates,” he added.
